°1991, lives and works in Antwerp.
Denie Put’s experimental paintings carry the viewer to a dimension somewhere between the abstract and the surreal. His play of shadows and illusionistic perspective of fore- and background seem reminiscent of typically surrealistic out-of-place, assembled figures in a dramatically lighted and mysterious landscape.
Throughout a plethora of influences, Denie creates a unique and contemporary visual language. His works have a general familiar feel to them; they might vaguely remind you of images you have seen before. However, they are open to a very personal experience: depending on your own associations and interpretations, they will carry a new meaning.
Denie Put is always looking to discover what paint can mean beyond the canvas: for example, by experimenting with painted bell jars, or by adding a mural in the exhibition space. Whether it be canvasses, sculptures, wall paintings or sweatshirts, his entire oeuvre is a continued exploration of the paint.
