Duncan - Geher

A lot can be said with a few well placed brush strokes on raw linen. Judith Geher's large scale portraits burst with life like a garden in springtime.

Murray Duncan's process begins with a vintage medical illustration depicting an anatomical figure, more specifically , the male nervous system. The image is then blown-up, cropped, painted, scratched, and scribbled over with stream of conciousness . Finally, the collage is encapsulted in a resin which acts to perserve the expressive process as well as creating an unpenetrable barrier.
