Kyle Dunn combines traditional trompe l’oeil and bas-relief techniques to capture moments of heightened intimacy in everyday life. His color-soaked interiors are inhabited by male figures in scenes both banal and poignant. Dunn celebrates the male nude and male tenderness in a way that is a break with popular convention. His visual language culls from a multitude of sources including Italian cinema and horror and science fiction novels. He grew up in Michigan and received his BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).
