Ken Rollins, Past Director, Tampa Museum of Art
“Denis Gaston is an important Florida artist, whose paintings address the human spirit in all of its manifestations.”
Megan Voeller, Art critic, Creative Loafing Newspaper
"Gaston's work blends the flavor of visionary art with the skills of a formally trained and professionally experienced graphic designer, making him a multifold outsider by conservative definitions of art."
Lennie Bennett, Art critic, St. Petersburg Times
“Gaston’s paintings have the primal, evocative feel of ancient cave drawings, their heavy, simplified forms worked on surfaces roughened like old stone.”
Evelyn Craft, Executive Director, The Arts Center, St. Petersburg
"Gaston's large-scale format and use of new media grabs the viewer's full attention, drawing them into his exploration of the spiritual self and one's place in the universe. High impact!"
Lance Rodgers, Curator, The Galleries at Salt Creek Artworks
"Denis Gaston is one of my long time favorite artists. His facility to take a thought or observation, filter it through his sub-conscience, and create a simple, elegant and poignant image, in a variety of media, has astonished me for years."
Jenny Carey, Flair Magazine
"Denis Gaston creates thought-provoking paintings and his spontaneous primitive style keeps viewers curious, while the technique remains flawless."
