It's not the medium or the oil or the price or whether it hangs on a wall or you eat it. What matters, what makes it art, is that the person who made it overcame the resistance, ignored the voice of doubt and made something worth making. Something risky. Something human.
Art is not in the eye of the beholder. It's in the soul of the artist." ~Seth Godin
"My paintings could be described as visionary abstracts. They are spontaneous explorations into what is currently fascinating me. Sometimes that is a concept: the poetics of breath, connection, chaos, yearning, expansion, love, divinity. Sometimes it's an image: I love the freely drawn line, natural imagery, circles, hearts, the written word. I like to see what happens in the moment.
Each work in its own way addresses the vulnerability that stems from being at the mercy of powers greater than us but also from the knowledge that life is precious and beautiful."
Gina Dunns work is a combination of truth and passion. Her compositions are abundant with nature and human touch, constantly revealing a secret. The strokes of earthy tones, textures and energetic symbols in her abstract works always tell a story.
Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Gina Marie Dunn has lived in Dallas much of her life.
She is currently an Educator at the Dallas Museum of Art and Art Stop, a Certified Yoga Instructor and Dallas Art Director for Origin Magazine. Ms. Dunn draws inspiration from her students and the beauty of the journey: Letting go, taking big risks and creating from a place of freedom.
Recently commissioned by The Omni Hotel to create 25 original works for the hotel, Gina's work has been displayed at Rising Gallery, The Latino Cultural Center, LuminArte Gallery and others throughout Texas and the Southwest. Her work is featured in both private and commercial collections and publications, nationally and internationally.
Gina is a wife and mother of three, has fun making art every day, and believes it is never too early to instill a love of the arts in children. She is also an active community advocate and serves on various local philanthropic committees by donating her time and talent.
