The artist, arts activist, and gallery owner sculpts a life around family, Legos, and the pursuit of happiness
Dunnan's signature figurative drawings exemplify his fascination with movement and the human form.
"This is me with my grandmother, Winifred Barrett Baldwin. An artist who always had a twinkle in her eye, she was my biggest influence in life."
"We bought this French 18th-century hand-painted bathtub in an antiques store in Washington, D.C."
"My collection of cuff links includes a number that were my father's. Some are banged up and old, and I like that about them."
“I play Legos with my nine-year-old son for hours. They’re wonderful for promoting creativity, and beautiful things come of this time together.”
“I love to see photographs of artists in their studios. This is Picasso—we have a couple of his works hanging in the bathroom.”
Body of Work:
“I did this sculpture while a student at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. It’s one of my favorites because it is so very peaceful.”
Time & Tide:
“I collect watches and especially love those by Ulysse Nardin. Each is numbered, and their symbol is an anchor, which is perfect because I adore the sea.”
Personal Extravagance: Cars. “I had a Ferrari that Goldie Hawn once owned. It was beautiful but never worked!”
Style Icon: “Meredith. She walks into a room with blond hair flowing, and whether she’s in jeans or Chanel, everyone says how pretty she is. Her beauty comes from within.”
Relaxation Ritual: Three massages a week. “An hour of thinking and doing nothing is a true luxury.”
Status Update: “I love Facebook! It’s visual and keeps me amused. I’ve practically gotten rid of e-mail.”
