Dennis Pinette’s visual armature is the inherent energy found in fire, industrial landscape, the tangled order of woods and fields, and the ceaseless rhythm of ocean waves. He says, “I like to push realism to the edge of disintegration.” Pinette’s major 2003 retrospective, “The Lucid Mark; Fifteen Years of Painting” at the Farnsworth Art Museum was reviewed by Deborah Weisgall for the New York Times. His work is included in the permanent collections of the DeCordova Museum, Portland Museum of Art, Farnsworth Art Museum, Colby College Museum of Art, Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Bates College Museum of Art, U.S. Department of State, and numerous corporate and private collections.
