Eben Dunn is an Atlanta-based, mixed-media artist. Dunn’s work, which combines elements of collage, assemblage and painting, plays with our sense of reading and understanding. Through clever use of wordplay and juxtaposition, Dunn subverts the logics of socialized morality and philosophies by highlighting ironies and inconsistencies in various political, religious and social dogmas. Combining what he calls “mathematical backgrounds”, found objects and collaged elements he creates powerful images that unify us all as well as remind us to be stronger individuals.
Currently Eben lives in Inman Park next door to his studio with his wife Stephanie and his ever-present dog Dalai.
The Studio- (also known as The Waddi).
I have been told that I am a “sorcerer” because I collect so many objects and once obsessed will find what I need no matter how long it takes. My wife thinks that I need intervention at times and that I am a borderline contender for the show “Hoarders”. My studio is filled with stacks of boxes, over flowing shelves, cabinets filled with beautifully printed paper. At times these objects are spread over every available surface including the floor. This chaos ebbs and flows like Charleston title marsh when I periodically “put things back in there place” so I can start the process all over again. There is an outdoor space that I use for the more messy work as well as gathering friends, bond fires in the winter. It also has two shipping containers for the overflow from my studio- (yes I have that much treasure). I am basically the Fred Sanford of my hood.
