Guy Denning uses not only powerful brush strokes to express his emotions deeply but also scratches the paint to show the audience the intensity of the emotions he is trying to portray with his artwork. Denning’s work involves other techniques such as blacking out eyes and mouths maybe to emphasize Denning’s theme of darkness, horror and maybe even despair. He also sometimes uses the thickness of his lines to balance the painting. A question that is often asked about Denning’s work is therefore whether it reflects his own emotions and feelings, for example does Denning really feel the emotions of Melancholy, solemness and anger or is the artwork simply presented the way it is for the shear sake of it.
