Duke Windsor: “Reflections”

Apr 1 - Apr 28, 2024

Sparks Gallery is pleased to show new work by artist Duke Windsor in his collection “Reflections”. Join us for the reception on Sunday, April 14, 2024 from 5-8pm. RSVP at https://sparksgallery.com/rsvp?eid=44364. 

Duke Windsor’s success as a contemporary artist lies in his ability to infuse ordinary subject matter with his own ingenuity. To commemorate 30 years as a professional working artist in San Diego, this series, titled “Reflections”, focuses on the city’s streets. Each painting is gilded with lustrous gold leaf, a technique inspired by that used for old Russian icons. By delivering a kind of sacred designation to these secular, worldly scenes in his art, Windsor implores the viewer to rethink what is deemed as valuable and treasured in our everyday environment.
