A large scale hanging mask, made of steel aircraft cable. The artist has distressed and roughed up the steel around the perimeter of the face, fraying the ends of the cable strands. Sensuous, powerful and sophisticated sculpture.
Sculptor Dale Dunning’s skilled craftsmanship never overshadows the story he wants to tell. Often he presents new ways of looking at the human face – sometimes as a mask, other times brimming with words and thoughts – and always compelling, a deconstruction of sacred narrative. Dunning holds a MFA (1971) from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Dunning has exhibited across Canada and his work is held in a number of corporate and national collections.
