APRIL 7 - 28, 2018

Richard Duning’s “Relationship” exhibition of abstract and figurative paintings created between 2000 and 2018 offer a spectrum of his emotional work from quiet figures to wild, imaginative expressions of self. One of Richard’s most recent works in the exhibition is a six foot by eight foot oil painting titled “The Song of the Earth”, which was inspired by attending a performance of 19th century Austrian composer, Gustav Mahler’s, Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth).

Duning’s Auray Linens are comprised of nineteen panels (fifteen of which are shown in the Black Faun Gallery exhibition) of expressionist, finger, figure paintings of Dunings wife. All of the pieces were painted on one 100-year-old bolt of hand-spun linen the couple stumbled upon in Auray, France.
