About Denny Moers
Denny Moers is known for his highly imaginative, technically innovative Monoprints created by controlling the action of light on the chemical-sensitized photographic paper during the print developing process, giving his black and white photographs an extraordinary range of tonalities. He has photographed subject matter as diverse as New England architecture, medieval wall frescoes and tomb reliefs, contemporary constructions sites and western landscapes and dwellings.
Denny Moers received his MFA from the Visual Studies Workshop. During the 1980’s he worked as Aaron Siskind’s first assistant and printer. He is currently on the faculty of Roger Williams University. He received a RI Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts in 2003.
His photographic Monoprints are included in over 30 museums and public collections throughout the world including the Addison Gallery of American Art in Andover, Ma., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Baltimore Museum of Art; The Huston Museum of Art, the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and the Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City.
