I seek out subjects that allow me to share my love of place with the viewer. What I try to express in my work is the feeling of serenity, contemplation, joy and wonder I experience as I explore the, boatyards, wharves and waterfronts of the New England coast and beyond. I am excited by the mystery under a dark pier at low tide, the jumble of angles and patterns of color created by skiffs and dories as they sway on the tide and, especially, the strength and quiet beauty of the artifacts and people who inhabit these magical places.
Gregory Dunham paints exquisitely rendered sense of the natural and built Maine coast. An admirer of the artists Andrew Wyeth, Dunham has an enduring passion for realism. His watercolors are classic depictions of Maine and reveal his meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail. A resident of Castine, his work is included in public and private collections around the world, including the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Rutgers University, and the Boston Public Library. He is represented in Maine by Courthouse Gallery in Ellsworth and Banks Gallery in Portsmouth.
