Claire Duncan came to painting after a 30-year career in graphic design. She combines a professional designer’s understanding of the visual vocabulary with an artist’s passion for the painting process.
“My painting emerges from a deep exploration into the nature of our dialog with the visual world. The work is about questions and relationships. It tries to address the colliding ideas of internal and external, viewer and maker, light and dark, object and space, engagement and withdrawal. The work is informed by intense personal experiences with the natural world coupled with the more formal concerns of design and color. It attempts to evoke the solitary experience of beauty.”
Claire lives in Ashland, Oregon where she continues to use art as a way of learning about and loving this amazing world.
