Hudson Park Library
Directions

These works were produced since the artist moved to Westbeth in 2014. They are all done from life, incorporating the sitter’s works or relating to the subject’s life and environment. Several sitters are represented in a series of works, offering more varied insights than the traditional “definitive” image portraiture offers.

Robert Bunkin is a painter, curator, art historian and educator, with an BS from CUNY and an MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

The physical exhibition was on view at Hudson Park Library Gallery: October 2-30, 2021

*Works can be purchased directly from the artist.
