In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Sculptures, 2009–2012
  • Dale Dunning

Forty years ago Dale Dunning and his wife Elizabeth bought a century-old farmhouse located about ten minutes from the town of Almonte, Ontario, Canada. In 1975, he set up his studio/foundry, called Lost & Foundry (a nod to both the process and the remote location), in a steel Quonset hut on the property and continues to work there. He received a Master of Fine Art degree at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, in 1971.

Sculptures, 2009-2012

For more than five years I have been exploring the reciprocity between open-ended imagination and the defined structures of design and symbol exemplified in type. The head that I employ in most of my work is generic, non-specific, genderless, egg-like in form and intention. I look on these sculptures as a mirror that reflects back the observer's experience in new combinations and associations.
