Janet Dunson holds an MA in Cinema Studies, and her sensibility is informed by career pursuits in experimental film, theater, and modern dance. She remains especially influenced by the choreography of Merce Cunningham. Her interests in dynamism, asymmetry, and tension led her to the non-ephemeral realm of painting several years ago and she has developed her abstract technique under the guidance of painter Pat Lip sky. Her work explores how form and color interact with one another, relate to the ground, and expand or contract the frame.
