About

Outdoor or indoor sculpture in polished aluminum. The figure of a face is constructed from old lead typesetting elements, welded together. A mold is then made and the face - which now acts as a sail within the boat - is cast in aluminum. The large metal wings cover the eyes and propel the figure forward. The vessel itself is polished. This is a unique piece. Sculptor Dale Dunning’s skilled craftsmanship never overshadows the story he wants to tell. Often he presents new ways of looking at the human face – sometimes as a mask, other times brimming with words and thoughts – and always compelling, a deconstruction of sacred narrative. Dunning holds a MFA (1971) from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Michigan. Dunning has exhibited across Canada and his work is held in a number of corporate and national collections.
