Open Studio: New body of work by Deni Lantz

Tuesday June 11, 2024 | 2:00 – 6:00pm

Location: 20 Jay St, Suite M05, Brooklyn NY 11201 (map)

Please join the Brazilian artist Deni Lantz at an open studio event realized at the occasion of his residency at Residency Unlimited.

Visitors will be exposed to the most recent paintings developed in his studio in Dumbo, NY where Lantz has been working since the beginning of May. For this new body of work, Lantz continues the investigation of processes of painting with multiple layers of paint, overlays and transparency, seeking an atmospheric force, exploring fields of color and pictorial gestures, subjects and forms that evoke memory, extended time and invite the viewer to immersion, reflection and calm contemplation.


Deni Lantz practice involves direct observation of landscapes, the evocation of memories, and the representation of interiors and quasi-still lifes. The core of his painting transcends narrative to become abstract—a concept and practice rather than a linear theme. For him, painting represents an indeterminate spiritual narrative, enriched with layers of affection and meaning.

The uniqueness of his work reflects his ability to transition between the tangible world of direct and overwhelming experiences and a profound immersion in the silent materiality of colors. Engaging in solitary handling of mediums, obsessive gestures, and repetitive processes, Lantz sees abstract painting as going beyond a clear-cut relationship between signifier and signified, drawing parallels with the language of music.
