Richard Dunn

Thinking Pictures

This book is a restless chronology of works by Australian-born, internationally exhibiting artist Richard Dunn (b. 1944) who explores the contemporary potential of art with full awareness of its modernist heritage. Thinking Pictures includes Dunn's own foreword and notes on his work, providing an insight into his thinking, of which this book is an illuminating, partial archive. It reveals how Dunn's visually seductive and speculative works explore the perception and interpretation of the social and historical context of art.

Dunn uses a variety of materials and formal orientations—photography, realist painting, abstract constructions, filmic montage and digital techniques, installations, light and sound—as strategies to interact with and subvert conventional styles of image-making to reveal something new and current. Dunn seeks to engage us in his exploration of how we perceive the particularities of place, including history, architecture, and ideas, bringing together the personal and the global.
