Brian Duggan’s work tests the physical limitations of the immediate environment that the artist finds around him. Stress and pressure, are a continuous reference. Duggan is interested in forces and pressures we cannot always see but ones that change and challenge our understanding of the immediate moment.
His work also looks to ideas of control, and questions where we stand, how we are tied and what binds us. Within this equation the artist finds himself re-examining his own role, and unpicking the role or function of the artist and the artwork itself. Duggan’s practice usually begins with tightly planned scenarios, which then come under pressure, and can, at times, begin to break down.
