Nude Descending (After Duchamp) (2013) partipates to the Everyday Abstraction Images at work Abstract Room project.
Dan Browne wittingly references Duchamp’s iconic painting Nude Descending a Staircase n°2. Duchamp’s painting, which became famous following the 1913 Armory Show, was breaking down the movement of a woman walking down the stairs, capturing the flow of time in a single picture. Because simply filming the scene would be mostly pointless, Browne keeps the image evanescent by adding a new unknown dimension to its movie, leaving the spectator wonder if it is an extension of time or space.
