PATRICK DUNFEY: LARGE PAINTINGS ON PAPER
curated by Dian Parker
July 17—September 30, 2017
Opening Reception and Artist Talk, August 5, 4-6 pm

Large paintings on paper, some measuring 60” x 85”, represent Patrick Dunfey’s latest work, created in 2017. The paintings are made on hot press watercolor paper using tempera and pigmented gesso. This dynamic new work in flat planes of saturated color alters perspective, exposing water and wood in unusual relationships. Shredded trees along a rushing stream, a lone dock on a still lake, a cabin door with a thin stream of light— in this expanded scale these dominant images might jar long-forgotten memories; mysterious evocations. Also included in this exhibition are small, framed paintings on linen.
A New Hampshire native, Dunfey received his BFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design in 1981. He has lived in Hanover, NH since 1985, and is Head of Exhibitions Design and Planning at the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth.
Patrick Dunfey’s artwork has been shown in museum and gallery exhibitions nationwide. His work is in the permanent collections of the Ackland Museum of Art, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, NC; Bowdoin College Museum of Art, Brunswick, ME; Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH; Luria Library, Santa Barbara City College, Santa Barbara, CA; and Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute, Utica, NY.
