This striking metal sculptural mask was created out of thoughts, words, and letters by Dale Dunning. The wall sculpture is cast aluminum and powder coated in a satin textured charcoal finish. The Canadian artist’s intriguing work is reminiscent of the Gothic and Classical periods of art that evoked a romantic sensibility. Dunning uses the symbol of the head as a metaphor for our collective experience.
“The head is universally recognized, easy to identify with. We live in our heads, see, feel, and experience the world in our head. It serves as the foundation upon which I can develop various paths to explore. “ Dale Dunning
