Dennis Hare

He charts a journey for the eye through the seasoned surfaces of his work, a rough and challenging terrain.   -Meredith Tromble, Art Historian

Dennis Hare has distinguished himself for the last decade as a favorite among Bay Area Figurative painting collectors.  His canvases have always sought to extend themselves beyond the surface plane by the addition of rich and varied textures in the paint and later by the addition of collaged elements.  His work has influenced many fine painters in the Bay Area.  Dennis speaks about his work.

I feel my work has a "soul" and beauty of things simple, imperfect, impermanent, incomplete, and unconventional.  It is the beauty of things humble and modest, where corrosion and contamination make the expression richer.  My work is made of materials that are visibly vulnerable to the effects of weathering and human treatment.  The record of the sun, wind, rain, heat, and cold create a language of discoloration.  Rust, tarnish, stain, warping, shrinking, and cracking are my pallet.  There is a poise and character to this natural aging process that brings life to my work.

 Dennis has had exhibitions at Campbell Thiebaud Gallery, Hackett Freedman, Elins Eagles-Smith, the Bolinas Museum and many other galleries around the country.  He has had a huge influence on Bay Area painting with his workshops and individual encouragement.
