There is a strongly English, verbal and narrative, wit to Dennis's painting where scale is played with, reducing the figures to characters whose story intrigues and eludes. The greenness of Dennis's country is vivid, beyond the natural, and the landscape made from peas. The artist wrote of this work 'For a landscape, one might choose peas or beans, flowers or a stained wall. But it is important that the chosen surface be a sturdy trampoline for the figures and images that will populate it.
