Dennis Masback

Dennis Masback utilizes his background as an accomplished printer in his painting process. By drawing an edger, a tool commonly used by commercial painters to paint baseboards, across the canvas, he “pulls” the painting as he would pull a print. With the canvas placed on a cart, Masback pours and spreads paint in various directions using the edger, then applies thirty to forty coats of watery glaze before rigorously scraping the transparent colors to “create a tactilely smooth, though optically variegated surface.”
