TINA MARIA DUNKLEY

The Latin American Contemporary Fine Art Competition
December 5 – December 15, 2018
Reception: Thursday, December 6, 2018 6-8 PM

The distinguishing characteristic of Tina Maria Dunkley’s work is the way she allows the materiality of her chosen media to speak through abstraction. Even when her work deals with more figurative or literal material—as in Blessed is the Fruit of Thy Womb Capitalism—there is still an overarching idea that can't quite be grasped intuitively, yet which reveals itself in the way the work a structured.

In this case of the piece just mentioned, the use of a silkscreen lends the finalized product a Warholian charm—which is far away from any message that the American Warhol would dream to communicate.
