What Denis Gaston is trying to communicate often eludes me, but I am always fascinated by what he does. The mysterious faces (often based on self-portraits but greatly manipulated) could come from ancient caves and vanished religions rather than the hand of a contemporary artist using oil and acrylic sometimes collaged with tar and encaustic. I can't look away. A new series, including Pappa Gant, shown, is on view through May 31 at Five Deuces Gallery, 222 22nd St. S, St. Petersburg. Hours are 1 to 7 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Free.
