● Excerpt for ArtSlant by Courtney R. Thompson, Materiality and Surface: abstracting form:
" Regarding aesthetics, Derek Dunlop’s paintings in the exhibition appear to queer the space with their fascinatingly grotesque skins. Gridded diagrammatic forms confound in their meaning as in systematic (white) (2010), and the eye shifts to the heavy application of paint and sickly skin-like palette of the rainbow-shaped forms in untitled (2010-2011). While the most abstract of all the artists on view, his work simultaneously appears present in its dense material corporeality while maintaining a mystical element in its obscure markings. Reid acknowledges in her accompanying essay that Dunlop’s inclusion “was a means to steer this conversation about abstract painting toward another project, one that looks at abstraction in terms of pure form and the materiality of the medium itself.” It’s an intriguing proposition, one that speaks to the continued vibrancy and relevance of contemporary abstract painting practice not only in Winnipeg, but beyond.
