Otto Duecker
American, b. 1948

Otto Duecker paints trompe l’oeil compositions that typically feature inanimate objects in surreal or unusual configurations, or uncanny renderings of iconic black-and-white photographs of famous 20th-century figures. Using classical techniques, Duecker paints in a style that melds Photorealism and the hyperrealistic appropriation of photographic images. In painted still lifes of photographs depicting figures such as the Dalai Lama and Marilyn Monroe, Duecker portrays the images pinned or taped to a wall and torn, crumpled, or curling at the edges, capturing their rich tonalities and surfaces. In other work he has painted arrangements of strawberries, peppers, or pears on glass shelves, and partially unwrapped Hershey’s Kisses, their silvery foil wrappers reflected in a table surface.
