About Dennis Stott:
The young boy crept tentatively into the forbidden, dark, musty upstairs room. As his eyes adjusted to the filtered light drifting through old, shuttered windows, he spied an ancient, well cared for roll top desk. The upper latch was unlocked, rolling up easily and revealing a clean interior. Cubby holes, stacked and shaped for items used by tidy, organized people, were built into its design. All was seemingly cleared away but for the past’s musty odor. Just before closing the desk, the boy glimpsed the corner of a paper rolled into one elongated shelf. Pulling it out and carefully unrolling it, a treasure was revealed. Although he had often seen art photos, this was the real object. A drawing, lovingly contoured, expertly shaded with blacks and grays, was laid before the eyes of the boy for the first time. Like some virus of a different source, this thing called Art began to spread through his soul.
Dennis Stott is now a full-time artist showing vivid, dynamic oil paintings. His art is expressive with broad strokes and vibrant colors demonstrating his love of the expressionists and post-impressionist. Eye candy an optical delight, depicting the recognizable subject matter with personal expression, is his goal.
