Dale Dunning: Unravelling, a solo exhibition, March 11 – April 17, 2016

Curated by: Sanjeev Sivarulrasa

Unravelling… the title of this show suggests many things: the physical transformation of raw materials into something beautiful in the hands of an exceptionally gifted artist; the unravelling of our bodies and minds as we age and mature; the untangling of the mysteries of the human condition – an exploration that art celebrates. In Unravelling, Sivarulrasa Gallery presents 23 fascinating works in bronze, aluminum, steel, and glass by sculptor Dale Dunning, spanning four decades of relentless creativity – including several new works that are being exhibited for the first time. The exhibition showcases Dunning’s remarkable versatility, his mastery of technique, and his intriguing vision.
