Jonathan Dunkelman, Painter

Our newest addition, Jonathan Dunkelman is a painter whose 'paintings hover between landscape and the non-objective. He combines geometric shapes interacting with flat bold plains of colour and spontaneous mark-making. His palette of bright, mainly primary colours combine with line and shape; from this Jonathan’s landscapes begin to emerge. Working without source imagery, paint is applied in thin layers. The result is work that explores the relationship between impulse and preparation, nature and urban development'.
A self taught artist, Jonathan's earliest inspirations came from his parents' love of art, expressed through their gallery, the Dunkelman Gallery. Jonathan continues to be inspired by his long study of martial arts and Zen philosophy.

He is currently (Oct 13-23) exhibiting at 183 Bathurst St, Toronto, and will be on site to discuss his latest work on Saturday Oct. 22 (11-6) and Sunday Oct. 23 (11-4). Weekdays by appointment only.
We hope you can pop in to see his work this weekend and welcome Jonathan to 100 Mile Finds!
