Dennis Hoyt’s artistic focus and drive are grounded in the “Trompe l’oeuil” (loy) concept. For over 30 years his definition of ‘art’ has been at odds with the conventional. His sculptures are both free standing and wall mounted and depict an automotive theme of motion and color. His sculptures are constructed of hand carved wood that focused on abstract presentations of formal shapes. These pieces developed into large-scale works using wood as the primary medium. The techniques he developed have brought him international acclaim. His work has garnered over 60 articles and many awards including the Peter Helck Award, 5 Athena Awards of Excellence, The Pebble Beach Concours d’ Elegance ‘Most Elegant Artwork Award, and he was the 1st recipient of the Raymond E. Holland award for Vision and Creativity. Today Dennis tends to focus more on how much he can ‘push the envelope.
