  "Ice" Collection of 4 by Denise Fike, Contemporary, USA Individually titled "Vain", "Coquette""Alure", "Desire" - Enamal on canvas, vintage wallpaper, silver leaf - may be purchased separately for $1800 each Denise Fike Bio: Denise Fike is playfully sassy, naughty and energetic, incorporating the nuance of naivete with the seduction of maturity. Girlish at times, painting striped legs with a terrier in tow, she quickly reminds us of her sophistication and love of wearing wide brim hats. She loves what she does; climbing into her painting like putting on a garment. No veneer here. She lets it all hangs out. There is immediacy about her imagery; her bold line demanding our attention. As if revealing three sides of her nature, Denise presents three distinct approaches to her work: floral, fashion and figure. She loves the draw form, specifically female form. “I just like the parts better. Men are too angular. Women are fleshier.” Opacity and palette play a great role in creating the backdrop to her figure work. Very much about her materials, nearly twenty years in the wallpaper design and manufacturing industry, Denise incorporates wallpaper with figure in her “fashion” and floral paintings. Weaving figure with rich wallpaper design and patterning, she creates rich textural taperstries. No fanfare here, minimalist even, Denise paints with enamel on convas, wood and other found materials, preferring a toothless texture to enhance the opacity of her color fields. Denise is fortunate that her relationship with her models allowsfor a comfort level that results in the most intimate of poses.
