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.
