Ricardo Duque’s paintings don’t reference recognizable form. The results are deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. By applying abstraction, he investigates the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.
And so, in Ricardo’s own words:
“Growth only happens with stepping outside one’s comfort area.”
Ricardo Duque will also be at Capers, from 6pm-9pm to chat and answer questions about his work.
