In Garden 2 Oakland artist Terry Dunn presents his latest work, three-dimensional wall pieces. Individual carved and painted elements are assembled and evolved into whimsical and evocative concoctions. In response to a sense of dread due to the current destructive impact of man on the natural world, Dunn has turned to the exuberant beauty of nature for inspiration and solace. By closely observing plants, and in particular flowers, he has reinvented nature and created a fantastic and playful botanical world.
TERRY DUNN was born in Portland, Oregon. He earned his BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art in 1982. He has resided in the Bay Area since then. His work has been exhibited in the Bay Area, the Pacific Northwest and New York City. This is his sixth solo exhibition at Mercury 20 Gallery.
