Myers Contemporary is excited to announce that George Dunbar’s mixed media work will be presented at Miami Arts Week. Known for his impressive career beginning in New York in the '50's, Dunbar has become one of the reigning legends of southern art. Working in his own personally developed style, Dunbar's work is in permanent collections in the British Museum in London as well as the Ogden Museum in New Orleans. Dunbar works with leaf on clay, etching directly on clay and works with bronze and other metals.
Dunbar’s refined works created out of the combination of earthy clay and fragile leaf shows his balance of sensibilities. His technical understanding of the range of texture and flexibility and moisture of different types of clay coupled with the flexibility and fragility of the leaf enables his artistic capabilities to be fully expressed in his multi-dimensional pieces. Dunbar’s physical comfort with manipulating the minerals in his works leads to a range of imagery that springs from the boundless arena of his worldly, artistic mind. Imagination and skill combine to present subjects from deities to marshes, geometric bridges to abstract patterns that explore the boundaries of life and earth, animate and inanimate, hard and soft.
Myers Contemporary will be presenting Dunbar’s work at the entrance to Red Dot, adjacent to the entrances to Scope and Art Miami. Red Dot Fair Miami, Scope and Art Miami will run from December 1 – 5, 2010 in the Wynwood Art District, with opening receptions on November 30th.
