paint the roses [RED]: “who dares to taint with vulgar paint”? In her current series entitled "paint the roses [RED]", Natalie Dunham explores the artifice, or “ways of covering.” Drawing inspiration from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, these minimal installations ask the question: What happens when we rely on surface interaction and alteration? For these works, Dunham strips materials down to a raw, natural state in order to reveal what is honest and uncomplicated about them. She then covers the forms with paint, creating a visual and psychological tension between surface and depth. The series hopes to illustrate that “painting the (roses) red” is a temporary solution and that the true “color” of things will always reveal itself. keywords; use of common materials, assemblage, abstract sculpture, cedar wood, sculpture, process-oriented, steel, abstract art, line, form and color, red, monochrome sculpture, illusion of movement, perception, minimalism and contemporary minimalist, contemporary color fields, recycled, mixed media, restored and repurposed, focus on materials, bright and vivid colors
