Dave Duffy

"Being completely self taught, I have always approached my work in a scientific way, quite literally applying the empirical "scientific method" developed in the 17th century and using it in an artistic setting. Through careful observation and experimentation I ultimately hope to create work so realistic it is indistinguishable from the subject I'm portraying."
