DURING SEPTEMBER artist Michael Patrick Dunn is exhibiting his works at the library. Michael describes his work as follows:
“I have always been close to nature from a very young age with a love of fine Arts. Perhaps it is the landscape I have grown up in, Oatley, where my studio resides, that helps me present the beauty and the connected-ness that I see in every aspect of nature. Self-taught from a young age, with many years of experience, I have found acrylic on board panels to be my chosen medium. I work traditionally in my studio so that the light is consistent with a variety of subjectsfrom landscapes, seascapes, heraldry, science fiction, medieval,historical events – all chosen with inspiration from travel & lifeexperiences balancing the two very different worlds of past &present”.
