Carmel Dunne explores the subtle romance of watercolours by wielding the baton for the ‘less is more’ brigade. The paper and cardboard canvases of her creations bring pencil-drawn figures to life, using moments of sparsity alongside heavily detailed sections. The beauty lies in the nuanced approach to colour, concentrating its presence in a contained area, and exploring variants of the one shade to create an unusually busy environment.
Whether romantic or geek-chic with thick-framed glasses, Carmel’s figures explore the beauty of the human face. The gorgeous girl, the handsome boy and the captivating androgyny between.
