Denise is an Australian artist currently based in Adelaide. She was born in Germany but grew up in Sydney. Denise is an abstract painter with modernist influences .She creates paintings with interesting shapes and textures that interact with each other. She uses a combination of shape, colour and texture to convey a mood and draw the viewer in.
Denise’s work is heavily inspired by travel, mid century design and the Bauhaus period. Travel, is where she looks for inspiration in texture, colour and experience. Mid Century design is influential in her work for its clean lines and shapes. The Bauhaus period was introduced to Denise by her German father, who is also an artist. The Bauhaus movement covered a wide range of disciplines. This period for Denise celebrates the freedom to overlap art and design. She has a passion for both.
