Chris Duncan looks to continue and expand upon his fabric works that map out the natural elements and architecture of various places. Using the sun as metaphor, inspiration and subject, Duncan's works absorb the phenomenon over prolonged periods of time and employs the celestial body as fabricator. Begun at Stanford University, the project has been an outlet for Duncan to capture, through sun bleaching, environments that are part of his life and practice: the skylight of his studio, windows of his home, a sculpture that he built in a National Park,the solarium and studio in Elaine de Kooning's former home. Color fabric is placed in these locales and without the use of dye, emulsion or any purposefully manipulated chemical process, imagery emerges through the ultraviolet exposure over prolonged periods of time (up to a full calendar year). In a recent development the artist has begun to paint into these exposures, returning the works to his own creative space, and reclaiming them as authored paintings. For NADA Art Cologne Collaborations, Duncan has placed several bricks in New York, California and Denmark which have been wrapped in fabrics with his signature color palette.
