Dale
Dunning


Dale Dunning a obtenu un BFA de l’Université de Mount Allison au Nouveau Brunswick (1969) et un MFA de Cranbrooke Academy au Michigan (1971). Un sculpteur accomplis qui travaille exclusivement en bronze, la tête est le motif principal de ses œuvres. Universelles mais personnelles, ses tetes échappent les stygmes attachés a l’ethnicité, a la religion et aux sexes. Pour Dunning, la tête est un objet de contemplation—un mirroir qui refléte les souvenirss, pensées et émotions cachées dans nos subconscients.

Sa série courante, Tabula Rasa, contraste les surfaces variées du bronze poli et patiné. Le Musée des Beaux Arts à Montréal et le Bibliothèque Nationale à Ottawa sont parmis les collections prestigieuses qui gardent ses œuvres.

Dale Dunning holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Mount Allison University, New Brunswick (1969) and a Master of Fine Arts from the Cranbrooke Academy of Art, Michigan (1971).Specializing in sculpture, Dunning works exclusively in bronze. The head is the central visual theme in his work:
“My representation of the head is non-specific as to gender, time, colour or creed. As an object of contemplation it functions as a mirror of the viewers’ experience, reflecting and evoking conscious and subconscious memories, thoughts and feelings.”

His latest series, Tabula Rasa, juxtaposes the contrasting surface effects of polished and patina bronze.
Among the many collections housing Dunning’s evocative sculptures are the National Library of Ottawa and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. A prolific sculptor, Dunning has regularly exhibited his work in private and commercial galleries since 1980.
