Denis creates works that are melodic in nature. There is a sense of perfect tonality in colours, rhythmic in his painting gestures and a perfect harmony of artistic techniques that range from the conventional brush strokes to the modern technique of expressive texturing. Denis admits, with deep sincerity, of his love fro his childhood rural home, and having been living in concrete and modernized urban home for many years now, Denis laments that he is slowly but surely losing the precious memories and images that he has for them. He is making a gallant attempt to capture these fading memories of a seafaring village and contrasting it with a modern twist of nature (wood grain – a symbolic representation of a rural village) to create a harmonious balance.
