Simon Fraser University, 2001, BFA in Visual Arts
Derek Dunlop completed his MFA at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver and is based in Winnipeg, where he was born and raised. Dunlop is an artist with a studio-based practice engaged with the political histories embedded in the materiality of mark making and the history of painting. Dunlop’s work considers abstraction as a method for thinking through repressed histories and the process of subject formation while negotiating the ethics of representation. His work has been featured in exhibitions across Canada and the US, including the show titled The Intuitionists at the Drawing Center in NYC which opened in July 2014. He will be an artist-in-residence in August 2014 at the Golden Foundation for the Arts in New Berlin, New York. He will also be participating in the thematic residency at The Banff Centre in November of 2014 called “Are we looking at dead birds.”
