ARTIST INFO

About 

Dennis Scholl (b. 1980, Hünfeld, Germany) resides and works in Berlin, showcasing a fascinating artistic evolution from monochrome pencil drawing to vibrant color on canvas. Scholl’s compositional intricacy invites viewers to navigate his paintings incrementally, uncovering hidden corners and assembling narrative fragments into captivating collages. Faces, bodies, plants, and organic elements converge in his cohesive compositions, offering an enigmatic, multilayered universe. In Scholl’s realm, viewers encounter characters with both humor and strangeness, gaining insight into their quarrels and romances. Engaging with his art means connecting with a circulatory system beyond the human, exploring visible and invisible connections, and experiencing the undulating energy of nature’s forces.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork 

"...Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea, 

Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely formed, altogether changed, and yet the same, 

I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe, 

And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn, 

And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin, and make pure  

and beautify it..."
