The painting loomed, large and foreboding. At a little over six feet tall and five feet wide, it wasn't the strangest he'd ever seen, but close. A girl with a wounded, sack-like face; a boy with pinhole eyes and a cruel sneer; and a distant shadow peering out from behind a dying tree, all stared back at him. Yet it wasn't only the subjects that challenged him, but the note that came with the anonymous painting. "Here in Art, Denial." For professor Daniel Rineheart, these four words herald a riddle that sets off a surreal nightmare. Where objects from his past manifest in canvas and oil. Where painted clocks tick-tock away in the dark hours before dawn and a missing dog whimpers from between the walls. Where the painted subjects themselves leave the canvas to stalk the halls of his once quiet house. And where all answers lead back to a blind artist and an impossible creation, one that threatens to destroy his family and devour his sanity.
