Classical still life paintings by Denise Liotta DeMarzo


The Grand Dame

Come to the Table is an exhibit of over 30 paintings by Denise Liotta DeMarzo, a lifelong New Yorker who recently relocated to Hilton Head. Denise was a critical care nurse and then an attorney before taking up her lifelong dream of painting. The artwork depicts food and drink and represents her work in the still-life genre.

The exhibit showcases representational still-life paintings in the classical style. It features common objects, mainly food and drink, including kitchen vignettes with pie ingredients, sumptuous foods/wine, fruit arrangements, and inviting cocktails. The pieces are timeless and are all painted from real set-ups, not photos. “I strive for a calm mood and beautiful colors,” says DeMarzo and “…aim to leave room for the viewer’s emotion.”

Denise studies with Jon deMartin, a classically trained artist and teacher, and Todd Casey, a still-life painter and author, both renowned in the New York art world.  Her work has been exhibited both locally and in White Plains, NY.
