Working with the strategies of sculpture and photography, Dunlap constructs images using digital modeling software. These arrangements are lit, photographed, and manipulated as if real, incorporating a lexicon of bodily and geometric forms. The resulting images depict moments of encounter between objects, often using misrecognition of form as a means of seduction. These effects are produced in an attempt to build believability in the visual universe and to further blur the distinction between object and body.

Corey Dunlap (b. 1990) received his BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2013 and is currently an MFA candidate at the University of California, San Diego. Recent solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at Helmuth Projects, San Diego (2017), How’s Howard?, Boston (2016), In The Pines Gallery, Jackson, WY (2015) and Howard Art Project, Boston (2014). He has participated in shows at the San Diego Art Institute, The Chazen Museum of Art, Embassy Galley, and The New Art Center. Corey is a recipient of the 2016 SMFA Traveling Fellowship, which allowed him to travel to Reykjavik, Iceland to attend the SIM International Artist Residency.
