Chris Duncan is an Oakland-based artist who employs repetition and accumulation as a basis for experiments in visual and sound based media. An overriding theme in current works is the use of natural forces, such as the sun and the moon, as conceptual and compositional prompts for both sonic and visual efforts. Outside of his studio practice he organizes events and runs a small artist book press and record label called LAND AND SEA with his wife.
Duncan shares his newest body of process-based artwork with SEE(d) on Saturday, January 26, 2019, 3:00 - 5:00pm at his North Oakland studio / performance space. Duncan sheds light into his time-intensive, chance-based process of aging fabric canvas out of doors, and then revealing the remnant of light / shadow in order to determine what hand gesture comes next.

Duncan earned his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts and his Masters Degree in Art Practice from Stanford University. He lives and works in Oakland, CA and often performs under the moniker: OFFING.
