Guy Denning and Frank E Rannou Create Emotional Paintings

Guy Denning and Frank E Rannou have collaborated to create the raw 'We Are All Prostitutes' series.

The paintings are highly emotional, with frantic brushstrokes and fiery composition. Each portrait evokes a painful realization of exploitation and compromised integrity. The paintings boast a sensuality that is disturbed by political tension and an outward shooing pain. Speaking of the title and defending the claim, Denning says on his site,"I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who has never had to make a compromise in their life to get by. And generally, whether we like it or not, it’s only the compromises that enable most people to achieve their personal aspirations." The intensity of the collection is all-consuming. The potential narratives for the portraits are both endless and painful.

The Guy Denning and Frank E Rannou 'We Are All Prostitutes' series is a beautiful and brutal look at compromise.
