David Denniston is a painter operating out of a studio at 400 West Rich in Columbus, Ohio. The focus of his current work is blurring the lines between fact and fiction. The narratives and sets are derived from past experiences or childhood memories, the figures portrayed in the paintings are characters he has created.
Using a house in Franklinton, OH, David has converted several rooms into curated stage like environments with dramatic lighting for posed scenes. The series involves a rotating cast of six characters that he uses as models for these situational paintings. These characters combined with a ever-changing sets create a fictional family facing real life scenarios.
David’s piece “Franklinton Rain” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of his work at daviddennistonart.com
