Gary Duhon has been painting and learning through intensive independent study for the past 10 years. He has traveled extensively to study the works of ancient as well as modern masters in museums, galleries, studios and exhibitions throughout London, Paris, Florence, Venice, Athens, Washington DC, and New York City. He works primarily in the still-life genre, and his influences include Morandi, Fantin-latour, Chardin, Francisco de Zurbarán, Robert Mapplethorpe and Ito Jakuchu. His painting objective is to master the manipulation of form, color, and the oil medium on the two dimensional surface and to create quiet, arrestingly beautiful objects. His work is largely commissioned by private collectors, and he has been represented by the Kevin Gillentine Gallery since 2007.
