Dendroica Gallery presents “Evolutionary Epistemology” – A selection of works by Martha Dunham

Martha Dunham sees animals with the trained eyes of a professional biologist. As wild animals are seen only in glimpses as they move through heavy cover, so do Dunham’s wire sculptures appear to complete themselves through movement.
Dunham’s wire work is often done directly, with a seat-of-the-pants engineering based loosely on the animal’s skeletal structure underneath the outside envelope.
Dunham also may make marks on paper or on material before creating the final sculpture. The marks on paper presented here are a sculptor’s explorations into three-dimensional space, translated onto the flat page. They leave a record of the space between two and three dimensions — a fractional space where relationships can come into focus.

“Evolutionary Epistemology … measures this progress in terms of an increase in universality and abstraction and presents the startling conclusion that we have knowledge of reality even though we cannot represent or depict reality.” – Peter Munz, Our Knowledge of the Growth of Knowledge.
