  • About

    Teresa Dunn's recent narrative painting series brings voice to stories that people of color, individuals with complex cultural identities, and immigrants shared with her about their daily experience in America. Informed by Dunn’s own upbringing, as a brown Mexican-American in the Midwest, these paintings consider isolation and belonging, joy and struggle, and relationships and identity through visually poetic constructed realities. The narratives are fictive futures, potential alternate realities, speculative nonfiction, or distorted depictions of past events. Dunn uses color, light, and painterly surfaces to build psychological tension on questions of race and gender. Dunn’s paintings are not didactic nor do they propose solutions for the issues they consider. Instead, US values representations of Black and Brown lives.
