EXCERPTS FROM REVIEWS

Senator Edward Brooke (R. Mass.) 2/5/74
“Dennis Paul Batt’s bold exciting ‘Vibrations’ bespeaks a powerful, original artist at work.”

Richard Dymond “New England Business Journal” 6/25/74
“These paintings are poly-chromatic: colors laid side by side in flawlessly engineered geometric
configurations… The individual patches of color seem to vibrate like the strings of a harp trembling long
after the last chord has become audible.”

Mary Lou Kelly “Christian Science Monitor” 5/18/76
“His most distinctive compositions are horizontal rows signifying land, water, and sky, each decorated
with repeated details such as mountains, waves, and clouds, often garnished with one or more figures.”

Richard Reilly “The San Diego Union” 3/27/77
“Gouache is a difficult technique, but one that is particularly suited to the work of Dennis Batt, for his
compositions draw one’s attentions to the freshness and lightness of ‘things’… all creating a unique
harmony of colors, rendered with the artist’s own stylization.”

Jan Jennings “The San Diego Evening Tribune” 1/19/79
“Dennis Batt plays with a myriad of disciplines in visual expression… Particularly impressive are his
renderings of interiors where he juggles the inspirations of Picasso, Pollock, and Vaserely, as well as
primitive influence and comes up with strong compositions, which invite eye movement all over the
canvas… he fuses a variety of artistic approaches, he is also cunning enough to blend them skillfully
and gracefully… In each of Batt’s paintings there is precision and color modulation.”
