Matt Duffin Combines Found Items with Human Bodies

Matt Duffin, a Texas-based artist, started creating art at a very young age and has transitioned recently from charcoal to encaustic wax, and currently specializes in contrasts and shadow art. He has said that “through art, he found that he could easily combine his tendency toward right angles and perspective drawing with the more human themes of solitude and irony.”

This is a perfect description of how his art comes off, there is a sort of dark somber mood that sets it tone. The combination of the found object heads and human bodies in his art says something about the human condition. Overall, Matt Duffin’s artwork and message is highly debatable, but it is clear that he is trying to emphasize the disjunct between the human body and the human mind and spirit.
