About Dennon: 

Beekmantown Graduate of 2014, after high school graduation I attended Clinton Community College for 2 years to explore opportunities, this is where I was introduced to painting. I then chose to concentrate on painting and a career in Fine Art. This led me to SUNY Plattsburgh into the BFA program, where I graduated from in May of 2019. After graduation I worked with SUNY ESF to bring NYS K-12 students out the the landscape teaching plein-air workshops to them. Now living as a full time painter.

Artist Statement: I primarily paint with oils out in the landscape then refer to this work back in the studio.

In my plein air painting I am pursuing a personal connection to the landscape by working from direct observation. Painting on a small scale requires every brushstroke to be relevant when seeing the work as a whole image. This immediate way of working directly reflects the intimate connection when experiencing the landscape. When choosing my subject to paint I look for a particular space that can act as a vehicle for capturing the light and mood of the environment. These smaller works sometimes offer themselves as the source material to create a larger work, expanding in physicality of the mark and immersion of the viewer into the landscape.
