Durant’s personal work is a quest to understand the human condition. As a sculptor his main interests lie in gesture, movement, and pose. His works are at times Illustrative, but always realist, exploring historical, and contemporary narratives—both known, and unknown. While many of the characters that he chooses to sculpt seem to be rooted in the past, they are his own imaginings of things not fully understood. Issues surrounding beauty, the body, and identity, give rise to a version of contemporary mythology that is new, yet seemingly familiar.
The exhibition opens May 11, 2019 and runs through June 9, 2019. Gallery is open Monday – Saturday 10am to 4pm. In June through August galleries are also open Sundays from 10am to 4pm.
