Marc Dennis

Where Dreams Come to Play, 2017

Laminated glass and mosaic

Marc Dennis' project at the LIRR Wantagh station depicts scenes of an idyllic and imaginative day at nearby Jones Beach. These scenes include colorful and realistic images of birds, beachgoers, sunsets, seashells and regional symbolism, such as the local high school mascot and Jones Beach's iconic seahorse. Highly detailed individual paintings were made for the project and translated into glass artwork for the windows of the station. In addition to the 30 laminated glass windows within the platform level waiting room, a pair of mosaic panels at two main stairways highlight ocean waves seen under a rising and setting sun.

Marc Dennis is a New York based artist known for his hyper-realistic paintings that celebrate the subversive potential of beauty and explore the charged subjects of identity, pleasure and decadence. He exhibits in museums and galleries and his work is in the collection of several major museums.
