West Main Artists Co-op
Apr. 16, 2023 - May. 16, 2015
Addam Duncan is having an exhibition entitled Deities.Delusions.Death. The exhibition will run from April 16 through May 9, with an opening reception on the evening of April 16 from 6-9 PM at West Main Artists Co-op, in conjunction with the Spartanburg monthly Art Walk.
Addam Duncan is a painter and printmaker who is a member of West Main Artists Co-op in Spartanburg, and also a member of The Printshop in Greenville. His work has an immense amount of variety. This past year, his diligence and experimentation has left him with a body of work that is quite impactful. This is evident in his upcoming show. The pieces exhibited deal with the search of spirituality from religious ideas and principles, the duality of paralyzing fear and indifferent acceptance of our own personal mortality, and the ludicrous things we do, while alive, to distract our minds from the inevitable.
Addam Duncan is a native of Spartanburg county, who moved away to pursue a career in tattooing and has been back since 2008. Having no formal art education, Addam declines the notion that he is a “self-taught artist”, claiming, “We write our stories in our minds with experience, and without all the people I’ve crossed paths with throughout the years, I would have unfortunately missed all the marks”.
We hope you make time to join us for the opening of this fantastic show, as it will be a wonderful view for anyone interested in the new and obscure.
