Dale Dunning
Soritical Head

2015

About

Soritical Head composed of hundreds of steel machine screws welded together with bronze.Bronze 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 a always compelling, 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. "The head that I employ in most of my work is generic, non-specific, genderless, egg-like in form and intention. I look on them as a mirror which reflects back the observer's experience in new combinations and associations. The works are open ended with no didactic intent other than to see new possibilities. I work in metal because I love the physical tactility of it and the processes involved in making a sculpture.” – Dale Dunning
