Dale Dunning

When it comes to writing about my work I experience a certain reluctance. Words tend to define and nail down ideas and to quote Nietzsche “words make the uncommon common”. My sculptures are objects of reflection and contemplation. The head that I employ in most of my work is generic, non-specific, genderless, egg-like in form
