FEATURED ARTIST

DUNCAN

Cross over art, figurative portraits and emotion sculpture best sum up Duncan's multi disciplinary approach to art making. Drawing from performance, the online platforms of social media and the real time relationships between the artist and his subjects he uses drawing, painting, porcelain, video and voice pieces like upcycled threads of often ambiguous, silent narratives. Playful yet arrestingly vulnerable portrayals of his androgynous self and those he interacts with become a storytelling art, a voyeuristic playground of purposefully indefineable direction.

The UK and US design sensation www.julianchichester.com has pipped me to the post on this limited edition Lucite Manimal series by Duncan. The stylish framed and light catching pieces can be displayed as seen here or wall fixed, preferably back lit. The manimal is an overglazed porcelain figurine featured in Duncan’s 2009 Parisian film Le Narateur Casse. The limited editions 2/10 are made to order in any Lucite colour range. The piece featured here with Julian Chichester pagoda lamps and stunning turquoise chest is his 1/10 in blood red. Available at Fulham Rd store UK now.
