Biography / Exhibitions

_____________________

Jack Duplock (1975) is a British painter based in London.

Duplock creates works around the narrative thread of a shamanistic pastoral derived from ruralBritish subcultures. Presented in the style of icons in votive painting often with simple handmade frames the works make knowing reference to folk art. Duplock’s style is drawing based but with a white wash layer the mark is subordinated in the almost minimal hues of the geometricbackground which carries Duplock’s signature icons of bird/deer, bird/man, shaman/horse.

Subliminally reminiscent of contemporary sub­cultural rites his works distill this to a new languageof a faintly sexualised imagination. The paintings remind of the endurance and in some casesrevival of an English folk culture away from the urban centres, which exists in the festival circuitand the contemporary versions of the town fayre.

Duplock’s most recent pieces appear to connect to the painterly language of early modernism, a nod to Klee, but also to the first appropriation of the modernist language in Seventies’ graphicsand textiles. His subversive mysticism also finds expression in his ready­-made objects, carvedand painted onto skateboards and surfboards.
