Christopher Duffy makes artwork to satisfy his material curiosities. He seeks to show the history of materials interacting. Systems that show the build up and removal of material over time has been a main focus. Water and air pressure are often the catalyst for these systems. Avoiding over intellectualizing he prefers to be actively making and doing.
Christopher Duffy was born in California, but spent his youth in the Chicago suburb Glen Ellyn. On his eighteenth birthday he moved to Cleveland Ohio to attend The Cleveland Institute of Art. There he was exposed to glass blowing, and made it his focus of study. In 2003 he received a B.F.A. from The Cleveland Institute of Art. He has also studied at the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington state, and The Pittsburgh Glass Center. Christopher had a hot sweaty love affair with glass blowing that lasted about four years, now they are just good friends. He currently lives in Brooklyn New York making mixed media art, and working with other artists. He has exhibited nationally in group and solo shows in galleries and museums. This is his first solo show in New York.
