Marina Savashynskaya Dunbar
Marina Savashynskaya Dunbar creates endlessly layered nature-based abstractions. Through a very physical process of harmonious movement, she manipulates the surface of each piece, giving it a sculptural quality. The artist pushes the boundaries of her material, while carefully navigating the balance between control and spontaneity.
‘’The practice is both seductive and uncertain. Fluid media is sensitive to its environment; a deep breath, a slight shift of focus, a sound in the distance all impact the process, causing the marks to sway from their predetermined path.’’
Dunbar's paintings bare resemblance to elements in nature but avoid any form of literal representation. This way she aims to evoke curiosity, while simultaneously providing a form of visual meditation.
