“[Dunlap’s] paintings feature just the kind of graphic yet idiosyncratic patterns that a distracted student might draw on the back of a notebook….The longer you look, the tenser it seems, as if it were a moment-by-moment record of the artist’s experience of checking spontaneity with regimentation.” — Holland Cotter, art critic at the New York Times.
