Using small hand carved wooden escutcheons created by rural furniture makers early in the last century as the basis for the molds, Dunning has created the wax elements and sculpted a series of four bronze masks. This is one in that series.
Dale Dunning has had a distinguished career as a sculptor. He holds an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. He has studied under acclaimed artists such as Lawren Harris, David Sliverberg and George Tiesen. His work has been exhibited extensively across Canada, and is also held in a number of public collections. His work was recently featured in the periodical Diacritics, A Review of Contemporary Criticism, published by Johns Hopkins University. Dunning is represented by the Oeno Gallery.
This is the Artist's Proof. The mask will be cast in an edition of 7.
