Description Hundreds of machine screws are pressed and welded into the shape of a large spiky mask in this haunting sculpture by Dale Dunning. The wall mounted, silent face is powder coated in silver and glints in the light. The title derives from the Sorites paradox also known as the paradox of the heap. If a heap is reduced by a single grain at a time, when does it cease to be considered a heap? This work is unique, not editioned. "My sculptures are objects of reflection and contemplation. The head that I employ in most of my work is generic, non-specific ... I look on them as a mirror which reflects back the observer's experience in new combinations and associations." ~ Dale Dunning.

Dale Dunning holds a Master of Fine Arts Degree from Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. While earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Mt. Allison University, NB, he studied under Lawren P. Harris (son of Group of Seven member, Lawren S. Harris) and George Tiessen. Dunning has exhibited across Canada and his work is held in private, corporate and public collections including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Robert McLaughlin Gallery, McIntosh Gallery at Western University, Carleton University Art Collection, and the National Library of Canada.
