1991

$34,500

About

A human figure emerges from a scaffold of waving seaweed and fish in this bronze sculpture by Dale Dunning. The title of this sculpture from 1991 is a popular catch-phrase originating from Shakespeare’s “The Tempest.” The phrase, delivered by a spirit, refers to the shipwreck and drowning in water 5 fathoms deep of Ferdinand’s father. Dale Dunning (b. Ottawa, ON) holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. While earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Mt. Allison University, NB, he studied under Lawren P. Harris. Inspired by classic literature, his work often reflects a romantic sensibility. His sculptures may recall the Gothic literature of Mary Shelley or historical novels of Alexandre Dumas. Dunning explores a variety of materials – bronze and aluminum casting, welded screws and wrenches, typeset, cable – all in the interest of creating the form. Dunning has exhibited across Canada and his work is held in private, corporate and public collections including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Robert McLaughlin Gallery, McIntosh Gallery at Western University, Carleton University Art Collection, and the National Library of Canada.
