Curated by Alison Amick
Justin Duerr: Surrender to Survival presents a selection of drawings by the Philadelphia-based artist. In 1999, Duerr began drawing detailed pen and marker scrolls. In 2008, Duerr started to connect the series of scrolls together, creating an elaborate story. These drawings incorporate poetry written by the artist and explore themes related to spirituality, the linear and cyclical nature of time, and include symbolic representatives of states of mind or non-mind with figures who evolve and appear throughout the works.
