"Stefan Dunlop is a guy who paints confrontational imagery in candy-toned colours. His facility with paint could really get him into trouble. What I mean to say is: a huge part of his work’s appeal is its program of ‘seduce and destroy.’ Seduce by offering the eye unctuous passages of pastel-toned hues, laid down one next to the other in pleasing, rhythmic slices — reminiscent, to me, of Cézanne’s structured brushwork. And destroy because once he’s reeled you in like a fish on a hook – BANG! – you’re left to deal with the uncomfortable irony of his chosen imagery, and the way his pictures insidiously mess with stereotypes, mores and political correctness. They make me angry. But I like that." Carol Schwarzman 2013

Stefan Dunlop's work is on show at the Caloundra Regional Art Gallery as a part of the 'Latest and Greatest' exhibition from Feb 3 to March 19.
