What will you be doing this weekend?
 
Vanishing Point 
 
Forget all the landscape paintings and drawings that you have seen, for this Spring Curious Duke Gallery will alter your definition. CDG's niche of surreal and urban art re-imagines our perceptions of classical landscapes as oil painting takes on graffiti and clouds drip from above in Vanishing Point. Burnt steel and chromatic mixed media drawings will grow over Curious Duke Gallery this March.

In ‘Stranded’, Vanessa Billy draws comparisons between the ebbs and flows of global finance and of non-biodegradable synthetic waste. When by-products are freed from the service of Capitalism they are forgotten, left to freely drift, until eventually they coagulate and toxify elsewhere. It is the stuff in the imagined elsewhere that piques Billy’s interests and where she finds her catalysts.
