Denny creates abstract themes with geometric subject matter, with his style being called “Asymmetrical Symmetry.” Within this concept, Denny creates basic symmetrical compositions and then treats the individual shapes, pieces, and components differently. By using line, pattern, shape, and color to individualize each segment, he brings asymmetry to his symmetrical work.
Recurring elements in Denny’s work include circle, square, triangle, and red, yellow, blue. The primary shapes in geometry that all other shapes stem from, and the three primary colors from the color wheel that all other colors are derived from.
While Denny’s paintings are geometric, controlled, and ordered, he creates each piece organically.
Denny approaches his paintings with a “Make it up as You Go Along” attitude. He doesn’t start with a sketch on paper to transfer to the canvas later, rather he drafts a design directly on the blank, white canvas.
