As part of his residency at Headlands Center For the Arts, Chris Duncan will use the sun, time, architecture, landscape, and the history of the region to create These Are Not Fall Colors. Duncan, traditionally a painter, will employ a variety of techniques such as rubbings, field recordings & sound experiments, and long term sun exposure “paintings”, which will result in a collection of visual and sonic stories. Duncan’s “sun exposures” are created by placing colored fabrics in windows or wrapping them around objects; without the use of dye, emulsion, or any purposefully manipulated chemical process, imagery emerges on them through a combination of time and ultraviolet exposure. As homage to the power of the sun, the works also provide a haunting intimacy and a new perspective of the objects and spaces used in the process of their making. In keeping with his practice, Duncan will organize a series of performances/screenings.
