Andy Denzler was born in Zurich. He works in oil paint creating snapshots of events that take place, blurred, distorted movements, His Freeze Frames series moves stylistically between Photorealism and Abstract Expressionism. Denzler frequently alludes to other media. Titles and subject matter refer to films, as for instance in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest or Viktoria in The Birds.
"I really love to see the emergence of glitch paintings and other forms of “post-internet art” that are physical expressions of digital media, it’s such a burgeoning area of exploration. Andy’s paintings seem to speak to the impermanence of memories and their inevitable erosion. The ruptured images capture a moment in time, yet the abstracted interference implies a sense of transience that makes the work feel infinite."
"The way he executes his portraits, like an old video still frame, I have never seen before. By doing so he automatically brings multiple layers to his motifs. It shows how memories are distorted trough time. I really love when something ordinary is transformed to something unique just by putting it in a new context. Thank you Andy for showing me an example of this with your inspirational and beautiful art."
