John Dunkley: Neither Day Nor Night


John Dunkley: Neither Day Nor Night is on show at the Perez Art Museum in Miami until January 2018.

Neither Day Nor Night includes Dunkley's paintings from the 1930s and '40s, along with a smaller selection of carved-wood and stone sculptures. He is considered one of Jamaica's most historical artists.

The show's promotion says: "Dunkley's paintings are defined by their distinctive dark palette, detailed imagery-often landscapes-- and psychologically suggestive underpinnings. His intimate sculptures reflect more figurative elements-people and animals-and offer insights into his unique iconography. "

His work is represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Jamaica and in many international private collections. But he has not been the focus of a solo exhibition since the 1970s nor has he been exhibited outside Jamaica
