Matthew Dennison

Dennison is well-known throughout the Northwest for the painterly elegance of his vibrant figurative paintings. Gently exploring the interplay between people, animals, and their environment, Dennison stages his cast of imaginary characters in unusual interpretations of ordinary surroundings. Dennison's sophisticated sense of color, composition, and texture balance his whimsical narratives and provide paintings that engage the viewer on many levels.

Matthew Dennison studied at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1981-’82, and has been exhibiting throughout the country for over 25 years. His work resides in a vast number of public and private collections, including Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA, and Legacy Emanuel Hospital, Portland, OR.
