PAINTINGS-DRAWINGS
RICHARD DUCKER
'So it felt appropriate to hide beneath the school desk, the weight of academic necessity above me and also
concealing me. From this, separate elements began to evolve to build up a narrative of the often awkward
relationship between the childhood and adult worlds.’  In this state, thoughts remain unknown, unnameable,
and awaiting definition. Loaded with potential, meaning is left desiring description. Through using sculptural
elements as suggestive props, Ducker reveals this economic as a state of conflict, as well as loss that is
inscribed in both the social and the personal.
