The accomplished artist draws on metaphor and retro-pop culture to explore shared experiencesDennis Larkins, who’s represented locally by the Cruz Gallery on Canyon Road and recently held a one-man show at the Sacred Gallery in New York City, has worked in the arts and entertainment industries for more than 40 years. Larkins was part of the Santa Fe art scene from 1967 until the late-’70s, when he moved to California and painted sets for the San Francisco Opera and concert promoter Bill Graham’s Day on the Green music festival. Larkins also designed sets for theme parks, including Disney and Universal Studios, but he’s best known for his posters and album covers for bands such as the Grateful Dead. Currently Larkins, who moved back to Santa Fe permanently seven years ago, is working with a local filmmaker on the storyboard for a new independent movie. – Cristina Olds The complete issue is available below, Dennis’ interview can be found on page 26.
