Oakland-based artist Chris Duncan recently opened an exhibition with the Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco titled “The Beginning. The Middle. The End.” The artist has been interested in exploring concepts related to process, transformation, and reduction. Duncan is known for his work involving intricate string sculptures, and has now begun to literally explore the threads that tie nature, science, and the sprit into life. The artist equally centers the work on personal and political issues, including works like “World War 3D,” which is composed of a globe, a cube, and panel that is littered with dots that represent chaos and destruction. Duncan received his BFA for the California College of the Arts, and is the co-creator of the art zine Hot and Cold. The artist has exhibited “Kults, Werewolves and Sarcastic Hippies,” at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco as well as “The Continued Exploration of Pink and Brown,” at the Jeff Bailey Gallery in New York City. In 2006, Duncan received the Goldie Award for Visual Art.
