John Denniston II

John Denniston II uses oil paint to improvise within modes of traditional realism. By abstracting chaotic scenes drawn from classical formulas, he offers a novel and surrealistic direction for historical painting practices. By manipulating linear perspective and color temperature, Denniston heightens the sense of discord in his narratives, which become critical takes on postindustrial society.
