Cris Worley Fine Arts will present the first exhibition of New York-based artist, Marc Dennis. The exhibition, entitled "Paradise Lost," will present new works in oil on canvas.

In this exhibition, Dennis continues his large works of intensely rendered vibrant floral motifs reminiscent of 17th Century Northern European still-life masters such as Ambrosius Bosschaert, Jan Davidsz de Heem, and Rachel Ruysch. These artists helped establish the genre of floral still life painting as metaphors for life and death depicting the widespread passion in Europe for tulips and other flowers from the East and New World. Flowers remain powerful symbols and Dennis paints them with great intensity, giving them fresh meaning. In works like A Great Piece of Turf (2018) Dennis captures the fragrant and delicate essence of these still-life images, replete with beauty and decay, reminding viewers of the fragility and fleeting nature of life.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through December 29.
