傑佛瑞 丹尼斯
Jeffrey Dennis
 Jeffrey Dennis was born in Colchester, England, studied at the Slade School of Fine Art. He currently lives in London and teaches at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London. His past paintings have embedded glimpses of contemporary urban life within landscapes of processed peas, rotting fruit or Victorian wallpaper designs and, more recently, the 'bubblescape' an organic matrix which seems to offer the potential for continual mutation and evolution.

Jeffrey recently wrote about his paintings: 'My work is rooted in daily experience: how people move around, inhabit spaces and make sense of their daily routines. Of particular relevance to this and to the structure of my paintings are the ideas of proximity, contiguity and adjacency: these terms express the abrupt collisions of incident and thought, the habits nurtured by travellers and inhabitants to protect personal space and the interrupted narratives of encounters and conversations. The paintings themselves provide a fluid, mutable net to hold narrative fragments and connective elements in place; a landscape corresponding to the fragmentary mental maps which people construct in order to give their existence some measure of meaning.'
