Hollis Dunlap is a painter based in Connecticut, who take influences from the master so the past, but brings incorporates them into an approach with an unmistakably contemporary sensibility.
Though he also paints landscape and still life subjects, Dunlap’s primary focus if figurative work. His compositions in all cases explore the expression of light in value, from stark chiaroscuro to delicate gradations of afternoon light.
His surfaces are not shy about stating that they are composed of paint, with brusque paint applications and areas of the background left open to the underpainting.
Dunlap’s work is currently on display in an exhibition at Sirona Fine Art in Hallanale Beach, FL until January 11, 2015.
