Biography from Eric Firestone Gallery:
Douglas Denniston’s work is unmistakably modernist. It is also unmistakably his, as the artist strives to imbue each painting with a distinct individuality to demonstrate not only technical virtuosity but a dedication to craft, and the confidence of a man who cut and followed his own path throughout his sixty years of painting.

Exploring the formal issues of color, composition and process, Denniston manipulates color and composition to maintain his lifelong conversation with abstraction while challenging and reaffirming perceptions of the natural world. More importantly, he wants to forge an understanding between artist and viewer as personal and aesthetic boundaries are pushed and expanded and one follows.
From piece to piece, Denniston follows a highly individual journey and
seemingly spiritual inquiry into the tenets of American modernism.
