    Chris Duncan is an interdisciplinary artist that employs the use of colour, repetition, and reflections, along with a wide variety of materials to ponder ideas such as perception and balance, in both conceptual and physical forms. Often in flux between the overwhelming and the minimal, rooted in simple application methods, Chris chooses accessible means of making in hopes to make broader connections beyond the typical art viewer. Light is a major theme of Duncan’s work as is an inventive use of materials. Duncan’s tape layers obscure their underpainting and fragment and skew the light that is reflected and refracted. This work is made by layer upon layer of strapping tape, that Duncan has removed the adhesive from and re-glued with an archival binder. So as the layers build up an optically vibrant pattern emerges. While essentially white on white the depth and layers of lines become incredibly deep. It is then sprayed with a matte film so it all appears almost blurry while it is right there in front of the spectator.
