From the Garage is a collection of works based around Hot Rod Ephemera and an ideological nostalgia from garage artist Duffy. These works represent the notion of throwing caution to the wind and stepping on the gas; They are true artifacts of adventure. Combining classic imagery, screen printed patterns, distressed surfaces; the art becomes more of a history lesson of a simpler time. These pieces combine his two major influences, lowbrow culture and midcentury design. Each piece starts out as a simple geometric form or stacked panels, which then get treated with imagery and color to create a scene that exists only in his mind. This style of work satisfies the desire for clean lines and good design, but with the loose and loud styles of lowbrow art, in his mind the perfect aesthetic, Always slightly out of control, just enough to scare you, but not enough to kill…maybe.
