David Denniston is a painter operating out of a studio at 400 West Rich in Columbus Ohio. He primarily works in oil. Currently Denniston is in the midst of working on a series that blurs the lines between fact and fantasy. Using a house in Franklinton, Ohio Denniston 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.
