Daniel Duford featured on Artforum’s 500 Words
April 16, 2012
PNCA faculty member Daniel Duford has been featured in ArtForum’s 500 words. He discusses his latest ceramic pieces, which are featured in the exhibition “Portland2012: A Biennial of Contemporary Art,” on view at the White Box.
“Vessels, myth, the written word, and narrative are my foundations,” Duford professes. “Because of my work with comics, I learned the value of sequential imagery. I see comic cells like ceramic shards that possess a physical dimension—they can be manipulated and assembled, spatially, to enrich a narrative and connect it to other physical objects.”
Duford has been a vital part of the PNCA community for years. He has taught a variety of classes including a Graphic Novel Intensive and upper division classes such as Senior Critique Seminar and Theory and Practice. His work will be exhibited in the Museum as part of an inaugural Hallie Ford Fellows exhibition in January 2013.
