Chris Duncan sculpture and works on paper
My work is constructed and the making process is essential to the final form. I assemble and disassemble elements looking for combinations of line and volume, gravity and balance that make sense visually and physically. I have a rough idea of how a piece will look but a lot takes place during the making, which is a process of finding the sculpture. I look for structure and expressiveness, and find expressive qualities of surface in a sculpture just as I do in a drawing. I like a kind of tension between the raw and the cooked.
