The art of Oleg Denysenko


Between heaven and hell.

These intaglio prints by Ukranian artist Oleg Denysenko remind me of Ian Miller in their fine, spidery detail, and Ernst Fuchs in some of their subject matter. Denysenko also makes sculptures based on some of his etchings.

    Thanks for these John. More than a touch of Svankmajer there, I think too? And just a tad of Noggin the Nog via the Lewis Chessmen, I feel…….. in other words, quite lovely.

    Yes, these touch on a number of different areas, especially a strata of the Eastern European imagination. I’m always interested in the way certain parts of the world manifest certain styles. Denysenko also does some paintings which resemble Orthodox ikons, which would no doubt be another influence.

    Do you have the book on Brodsky & Utkin by Lois Nesbitt?
    I think that you would like it,( and the quality of paper and repro is very good).
