Das Giftraum is pleased to present paintings by Berlin based artist Chris Dennis. The title comes from the first short-story collection by American author, Raymond Carver called: Will You Please Be Quiet, Please? (1976).
The paintings are the essence of the larger, more narrative paintings reduced back down to just paint. It spills into, or is regurgitated out of disembodied heads from previous works. The paint could resemble speech or thought bubbles, a stream that cannot be turned off, the things you should have said and the things you wish you hadn’t.
