Dunlop strives for timelessness with his art. Each work resists periodisation by virtue of the sensation that its own image may not even belong to this or any other world; may exist above all for itself, or that its secrets will not be revealed lightly. Beyond the window of these paintings is a plane of consistency, where the one constant is the artist’s idiosyncratic coding of the infinite – light years away in our own back yard.” – Gilbert Meadowcroft, 2003

“Gardens are the perfect intersection of nature and culture; a form of architecture posing as nature.” – Richard Dunlop
