About

Wall mounted sculpture of a mask, with energy emanating from the 3rd eye.
Created from welded screws with bronze to create the intricate shape of a face. A glass stone is carefully set in the center of the forehead, highlighting the third eye chakra. The contours of the screws resonate away from this central focal point making the work spiritual and meditative.

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 – often as a mask – and a always compelling 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.
