“Part painting, part found-object sculpture, William Joseph Dunn uses objects rescued from the trash to create three dimensional paintings that comment on more intellectual themes. WJD chooses discarded artifacts, not only for the textures and imperfections they lend, but because they carry a prior history before he painted on them. While not obvious at first glance, Dunn’s chosen subject matter is usually a comment on the human condition or a political observation portrayed symbolically for the viewer to interpret for themselves.
Dunn relocated from New Jersey to Los Angeles in 1997 to paint backgrounds for animation. Since then, Dunn has worked at such studios as Disney, Warner Bros., Nickelodeon, and Sony Animation.”
