Denise Prince Artist Bio:
Denise Prince has had critical success and both the commercial and academic art worlds. "No one is making work like this," Anne Wilkes Tucker, Curator at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, asserted about Prince's photographic work in the collection of the museum. Ardent support of Tractatus 7 also comes from master photographer Joel-Peter Witkin. This work is an extension, a public and cultural version of a clinical and private study, by Prince and Charles Merward of the logic of fantasy. Merward, a philosopher and practicing psychoanalyst, attributes that “Being able to make explicit the concepts and commitments implicit in the fantasy of our everyday reality is a continuation of the Enlightenment.” Across the disciplines of film, photography, painting and object making, Prince’s work employs the commercial language of advertising to make explicit what is real or deftly, its counterpoint, fantasy. The lush styling and singular locations in Prince’s constructed portraits are augmented by wit and make clear the pleasure with which she constructs narratives and then carefully disrupts them. The concept is essential to the nature of photography. "Caught in a state of permanent suspense vis a vis events that have just happened or are about to take place, photographs contain essential seeds of narratives that can never come to fruition except in the imagination."
