POLYPTYCH.

Icons among tradition

and contemporary.

Creation, decomposition, rebirth.

The works in the Polyptych series immediately reveal a profound communicative capacity; they are images that attract in technique, color, and composition, arousing in the viewer a curiosity that immediately induces a desire to discover what lies beyond the faces depicted.

The power of gazes, the joining and splitting of multiple figures, the succession and interweaving of planes and new points of view transform Duty Gorn’s works into large palimpsests to be discovered detail by detail through a unique and highly recognizable style. Beginning with the medieval tradition of Giottesque polyptychs and altarpieces to the art of graffiti, the Artist develops a process in which his own experience and creative instincts find fulfillment in works of art endowed with their own form and values in a perfect blend of tradition and contemporaneity.

After painting the canvas, the Artist breaks it down and then assembles it in unprecedented combinations in a quest to achieve aesthetic and formal perfection. A procedure of “acrylic geology” that acting layer by layer leads to the birth of a new work, proposed under unusual and infinite variations: details of faces brought together and arranged on candid backdrops that, like icons dominating altars, are elevated from the ground to be admired and scrutinized.

Like the tiles of a mosaic, the wefts of a fabric, the pages of a book, each canvas encloses a detail that tells something, in the detail it represents or as a whole, telling a story or granting the one who enjoys it the possibility of creating his own on a journey between past and present. A call not to stop on a single thought or action, with an invitation to go further, experiment, dare toward new experiences.

“the MIEi paintings are layered on top of each other, building a timeline of acrylic geology.”
