When he was only eight years old, Denard Stalling's mother enrolled him in art classes at the Columbus College of Art and Design (CCAD). And he hasn't looked back yet.  Stalling graduated from CCAD with a bachelor's degree in illustration in 1988 and moved to Atlanta to begin his professional artistic career. For the last 15 years he has worked in a variety of mediums and experimented with multiple styles, becoming accomplished at portraiture and reveling in the realist genre.  Now, Stalling has combined his skill at realistic rendering with his deep love of music. His newest work has been a passionate blend of strikingly realistic images and a musician's knowledge of the aesthetic intimacies of musical instruments. His interpretation of the lines and grace of instruments and their accompanying sheet music evoke an elegant richness of expression.  Balance, clarity and purity of form are foremost in a Stalling piece. Simple elegance is allowed to shine through, as Denard Stalling strikes a new chord with his evocative, breathtaking compositions. Elevating the instrument to a grand and well-respected status, Stalling manages to merge the worlds of art and music in an innovative display of detail, light and color.
The design and craftsmanship of each piece are evident in the work Denard has produced lately. Each piece is a masterful production that combines technique, diffused, warm lighting patterns and strong composition. Every finished painting is then complemented by one of Stalling's handmade abstract frames, each of which has been created from parts salvaged from old instruments. The resulting pieces are an eloquent statement.  Contact us for frame prices and details.
