Dunlap Defies Description
Many have tried, but failed, to pin down the work of artist William Dunlap. It encompasses every medium, from painting and sculpture to constructions and mixed-media installations, featuring images of animals, flowers, and objects in pastoral landscapes. Consequently, art reviewers dunno how best to classify his work, which he defines as hypothetical realism: places and situations [that] dont exist; but they could, says Dunlap. Youll get your chance to try labeling his vision today when he appears at Books & Books. This evening at 6:00, the artist will be on hand to sign copies of his new book, Dunlap, which features more than 100 full-color reproductions of his artwork, spanning three decades.
Dunlaps pieces are exhibited at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and in American embassies throughout the world. Dunlap keeps a Coral Gables studio, and although hes from Mississippi, he considers himself a Florida artist. For $200, art lovers can buy a limited, signed, numbered edition of the book, which comes in a clam-shell box with signed prints. Call 800-737-7788 to pre-order the special edition.
