About

Marina Dunbar was born in Minsk, Belarus, & moved to the United States when she was 9 years old. Based in Columbus, Georgia, Dunbar graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art from Columbus State University. Her new body of work, Movements in Color, is nature-based abstractions driven by an exploration of movement, color & balance. Traces of time are captured between Dunbar's layers of watercolor. She is inspired by the aesthetics of floral x-ray photography. Developed by a radiologist in the 1930s, this documentation of plant forms resulted in a poetic merge of art & science. Drawing from the simplicity of this photography, Dunbar approaches her paintings with a sense of restraint; laying down transparent shapes of color & letting the interaction of hues establish depth & dynamic motion.

Her relationship with the medium is very physical. The surface of a painting is bent, manipulated and twisted to guide the paint, granting the process a sculptural quality. Through simple gestures of pouring and removing paint, gravity shapes the lines and forms that start to resemble organic elements. Each painting seeks a level of reservation as well as an embrace of spontaneity.

"Green Glen" features hues of violet, white & green.
