(LAKEVILLE, Conn.) – Return to Gotham, an exhibition featuring cityscapes by Connecticut artist David Dunlop, opens Friday, May 31, 2013, at White Gallery, and runs through July 14. There will be an opening reception with the artist on on Saturday, June 1.
The works in Return to Gotham examine a city in motion, a city in perspective, a city in electric color; a city of reflections, vibrating, pulsing, with deep and luminous space.
“David captures the essence of the city street in his own imitable style with splashes of color and movement, movement, movement,” says Tino Galluzzo, director of the White Gallery. “These pieces are filled with energy and are almost kinetic with movement. As one views the work, the din of taxis, trucks, sirens, vendors and people trying to occupy the same small spaces all combine and mix with the form and color to create a symphony that is as pleasant to the eye as it is to the ear…..think ‘Rhapsody in Blue’.”
David Dunlop is a modern-day old master whose luminous landscapes draw from both Renaissance techniques and contemporary science. His paintings have been shown internationally and are held in the collections of major corporations including Aetna Insurance, Citibank, Colgate Palmolive, Delta Airlines, GE Capital Corporation, IBM, Mobil and more. Galleries and institutions have granted David solo shows since 1981. Dunlop is also the host and Emmy Award-winning writer of the 13-episode PBS television series Landscapes Through Time with David Dunlop, which debuted to great success in June 2008. The Series was awarded a 2009 Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing and a CINE Golden Eagle Award for excellence in television production.
