Artist Spotlight: Meta Dunkley Arnold
1st Place Prize Winner
Meta Dunkly Arnold makes found-object assemblages, and also teaches art to young children at Painted Oak Nature School and Art Sparks in Hopewell. Her background in English literature lends a narrative quality to many of her pieces, and her work as an educator inspires her to try to capture the excitement of discovering new things.
“Many of my assemblage pieces are kinetic and interactive, inviting the audience to share my creative process by going on a “treasure hunt” of their own. This piece, ‘Adeline at the Window,’ portrays my favorite scene in Ann Radcliffe’s early gothic novel, The Romance of the Forest. Far from being a helpless maiden, Adeline rescues herself and saves all the characters. Here she escapes the scheming Marquis by climbing out a window. Opening a book opens a window for the reader, a process Radcliffe’s characters enact by deciphering older, hidden texts for clues to their own stories. Like art (especially assemblage), Gothic novels celebrate the process of discovery.”
