Dumas’s oil paintings use figurative compositions to explore life’s situations, internal and external. His work gives the viewer a chance to look behind the human curtain and see a possible view of themselves. He paints with vivid colors and his use of thick impasto oil paint applied with a palette knife and brush achieve colorful and richly textured canvases. His both visceral and viscous approach to painting conspire to achieve a “fine mess ”.
