Tom Bunnell of Washington D.C. currently has works on paper at TSV Berlin. Some of his smaller monochromatic ink on paper hanging above my desk. 

Tom Bunnell is a fantastic artist and friend from Washington D.C. who I've known for more than 10 years. We met at American University when I started teaching there as an Adjunct and he was just finishing his MFA. He too also began teaching as an Adjunct at AU shortly after I did. He's so fantastic to critique with during the full faculty graduate student critiques at AU, so I invited him to moderate a couple of TSV's public art critiques in D.C. last year. He also recently was included in a painting show at Civilian Art Projects in Washington D.C.

He's a dedicated and passionate artist whose work has evolved so much over the years that I've known him and yet he remains steadfast and committed to formalist if not modernist strategies in his paintings. I'm happy to have his work as part of our Flat File at TSV.

If you want to see these gorgeous tempera and goache paint on paper, contact me! I don't have the space for very long so take advantage if you're in Berlin this holiday.
