Claire Duncan’s current work continues her series of paintings responding to questions of what it means to be human at a time when our own actions threaten the very nature that inspires us.
The creatures that inhabit her paintings appear to bear witness to the after-effects of human impact and give silent judgment. We are left to choose between the comforting, even sublime, experience of immersive nature and the anxiety we face when confronted with the consequences of human activity.
Heart-felt poetry by Pepper Trail amplifies and expands these themes. The two art forms, visual and verbal, experienced together, make a powerful impact and leave a lasting impression.
