About Stan Hennigh
Stan Hennigh is a thoughtful, intelligent force in American art today. In a painting career of over 43 years, Hennigh has developed a poetic visual sophistication and excitement that is rarely achieved. He has been honored in exhibitions curated by the Smithsonian’s Curator of American Art, Joann Moser and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art as well as with one man shows in New York, Chicago, Kansas City, Santa Fe and Colorado.
“His large canvases of landscapes verge on the abstract, but speak in general terms of the Western landscape's big sky and extraordinary light. There is a quality of complete absorption in his work, an incredible juicy sense of color that pulls the viewer into the composition. The colors seem to vibrate, and it feels as if one was looking at something vast and pulsating and redemptive.” – Elizabeth Marglin, Visual Arts Critic, Boulder Daily Camera
“Stan Hennigh is an artist to respect, watch, and collect over the coming years.” – Chicago Reader
“Stan Hennigh’s unique ability to animate unexpected combinations of compositional structure… makes him one of the most intriguing artists working today. His work has boldness, power, a lot of subtlety and panache!” James Sanchez, of New York’s, “Gallery and Studio”, Magazine
Hennigh studied art and art history in Glasgow, Scotland, at the University of Missouri and at the University of Colorado. Hennigh’s Red Dot Studio is in Longmont, Colorado. His work is featured in a number of noted collections.
