Ace Art Inc., 2nd Floor, 290 McDermot Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Dunbar has always worked in a figurative style, but since June 1986 her oils on canvas began to focus exclusively on the human figure. Placing the figure side by side with stone sculpture, ancient mosaics and stained glass, the artist explores, visually, the hardening or calcification that occurs as a result of the tension between socially conditioned mores and our desire to be fully alive. At the same time, Dunbar addresses the possibility that what has become hardened may be frangible or easily broken, or that there may indeed be strength within fragility.
