Marc Dennis is an American artist known for his hyperrealistic paintings that celebrate the subversive potential of beauty and explore the charged subjects of identity, pleasure, and power. His works have been included in numerous group and solo exhibitions in New York, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, Boston, Houston, and Seattle, and included in numerous private and public collections, including those of JP Morgan Chase; The Neuberger Berman Collection, New York; The Blanton Museum of Art, University of Texas at Austin; The Springfield Museum of Art, Ohio; and the Iris & B. Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, among others.

During ArtCrush 2019, we sat down with some of the attending artists for a new audio series called Blind Contour to discuss their current practices and happenings. This episode features painter Marc Dennis talking about the darkness in his paintings and his love of painting commissions, one of which was featured in the ArtCrush 2019 Live Auction.
