Bruno Dunley, "Daphne", 2016, oil on canvas, 2 parts of 26 x 21 cm (each)

Bruno Dunley debuts his first solo show in the U.S.

(New York, USA)

Bruno Dunley opened yesterday, January 17th, his solo debut in the U.S. – more specifically, in New York, at Galeria Nara Roesler. “The Mirror” presents a selection of works developed during the artist’s residency at Further on Air (FOA), located in Long Island. The occasion also marks the launching of a monographic publication on the Dunley’s production of the last ten years.

Referencing canonic figures of the Western world and the history of painting (many canvases are titled after Greek mythological characters, such as Sisyphus or Danae) while, paradoxically, denying any direct commitment with them, the artist presents works that are neither figurative nor completely abstract. According to Leda Catunda, fellow artist and author of the introductory text to the show, they reveal a Dunley that seems to see painting itself as a mythical construction:

– It’s an almost infinite world of very significative images, all of which strongly reflect the human nature in spirit, thought and ideals – writes Catunda, who’ll also be at an open talk together with Dunley this Saturday, January 20th, at 11 am.
