Painter John Denniston II

Not Dave(id) 2020 Oil on canvas 30" x 40"

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California by a family of dancers, painting came natural to a self engaged young boy who was too self conscious to get on stage. I moved to Brooklyn to study at Pratt, and now I'm being introduced to the hard part of artistry-honesty. Not like confessing, it's not about me, it's about making something that I or someone might be able to confess to.

From the start of my artistic pursuit I have believed thought is the beginning and end of painting, but painting is also a crafted form and it is this form which delivers ideas to the viewer. From bathing in the process of crafting paintings I have come to realize that I am a viewer in my own right, and I don't like spoiled tales so I usually paint to discover. It keeps the relationship spicy and keeps me on my toes.
