    Chris Duncan: Sculpture Space Alumni Exhibition
    Friday, January 19 - Friday, February 23, 2018

    An essential component of Chris Duncan’s work is the construction and the physical process of making his sculptures. In his process, Chris assembles and disassembles elements looking for combinations of line and volume, as well as gravity and balance to create pieces that explore space visually and physically. The process of making becomes an act in finding the sculpture.
