About the Work

Old metal type welded together to form a large enigmatic mask is cast in aluminum. The title of the wall sculpture, Font, refers to a particular size, weight and style of a typeface. The artist commented on his work: "My sculptures are objects of reflection and contemplation. 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 my new possibilities." 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 private, corporate and public collections including the Canada Council Art Bank, Carleton University and the Robert McLaughlin Gallery. This work is the last in the edition. 7/7
