Denise Presnell

I am a painter living and working in Wisconsin. My intuitive, introspective work embraces change in a precarious balance between chaos and compositional control. Images can go spiraling out of control at any given point of my process – which is a good sign that the work has promise. To be satisfied with a piece, it must provide a surprise. This takes a lot of building up of layers and marks, only to tear it back down again when the disparate elements all want to have their own say. I try to leave at least some areas in my works with a glimpse of each step of the work process – a sort of visual mapping of my decision-making. Balance is achieved through both conscious and subconscious efforts.

This current work is based on years of education in art, years of painting and studying art in museums, galleries, books, etc., and then freeing myself from their hold on me in order to express my individual voice.
