The Austonian Art Collection: Artist Denny McCoy’s Work Featured in Malick film, “Tree of Life”
The Austonian art collection features over 60 local and regional artists installed throughout the public areas of the building. Denny McCoy’s acrylic on canvas painting, “Blue Hole,” is installed in The Austonian luxury condos in downtown Austin.
Another piece by McCoy, “El Sal del Rey,” was recently featured in one of this summer’s most anticipated films, Tree of Life. The film, written and directed by Terrence Malick, was shot partly in Austin and premiered at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival winning the Palme d’Or.
"El Sal del Rey" is in Denny McCoy’s current show at the D Berman art gallery, which recently moved from Austin to Wimberley.
Denny McCoy is known for using illusionary effects on light and color to create optical fluctuations on his canvas paintings. More information about McCoy may be found on the D Berman website here.
