I saw myself in the mirror this morning.

Not a pretty sight.

Ever since I crash-landed on this accursed planet not a day has gone by that I haven't wished for merciful death. Instead I've got another gallery opening to attend tonight. Tomorrow night's a group show…I think… where'd I put that damned invitation?

Damn all these…these…art heads to Hell! Can't I get a moment's rest!?

But no.

That's my ride, pulling up outside.

One last check of the outfit, the hair, the "look". Got to fit in with the art heads or else they'll start to suspect something. And if they found out I was really an outsider, not truly one of them, death might not seem so merciful after all…

Here you will find heaping portions of Dennis' work in dimensional canvas paintings and prints.

Dennis Larkins is responsible for pioneering and refining a bold new approach to artistic expression.  His paintings literally jump off the canvas, his prints seem to pull you into a three-dimensional world.  His work combines clear traces of his varied and eclectic theatrical career, juxtaposed with the pop-surrealism of cultural images, with subjects ranging from edgy to darkly humorous to whimsically cosmic. 

The limitations of photography and the Internet prevent you, gentle surfer, from fully appreciating the topographical qualities of Dennis' body of work. Fortunately, the power of the images hold up just fine in two-dimensions, so don't hesitate to browse the pieces presented below and appreciate for yourself the many other levels that each painting presents. 

Or, to put it in Dennis' own words, "Art is the point of contact between artist and viewer, idea and expression, cause and effect.  The result is a creative experience containing limitless potential for dialog and interpretation."

"How does he do it?" Dennis uses foams, rubber, and plastics to achieve a combination of low- and high-relief sculpture directly applied to the canvas or built up in layers.  Some paintings "pop" more than others, but even the most multi-layered works ("Unfinished Business", for example) do not exceed five inches in depth.  But, thanks to Dennis' skill, even a few inches of dimensionality can seem to create the illusion of a fully immersive scene.
