Perez Art Museum of Miami presents John Dunkley: Neither Day nor Night. This exhibition presents the work of John Dunkley (b. 1891, Savanna-la-Mar, Jamaica; d. 1947, Kingston), widely considered to be one of Jamaica's most important historical artists. Neither Day nor Night will include paintings from the 1930s and '40s alongside a smaller selection of carved-wood and stone sculptures. Dunkley's paintings are defined by their distinctive dark palette, detailed imagery-often landscapes--and psychologically suggestive underpinnings. His intimate sculptures reflect more figurative elements-people and animals-and offer insights into his unique iconography. Although his work is well represented in the collection of the National Gallery of Jamaica, Kingston, as well as in international private collections, Dunkley has not been the focus of a solo exhibition since the 1970s, and never before outside Jamaica. This exhibition represents a unique opportunity to bring together a substantial grouping of his work and to create an international context for its study.
