ABOUT THE ARTIST
Braden Duncan (a.k.a. Clockwork Art) is inspired by the intricate elegance created by the convergence of biological & mechanical elements. As our lives become increasingly mechanised & electronified, humans & animals must adapt to survive. Braden's pieces represent organic beings enhanced for their new roles in a bio-industrial world. With watercolour & oil, Steampunk & circuitry, she aims to reshape the world with the strange & the adorable.
Her current bodies of work focus on kittens, birds, bunnies & bugs augmented with mechanical & pop culture accoutrement.
Braden is the co-founder of the Seattle Arts Coalition, writer of Art Scene Seattle, curator of Steamposium's Artist Alley & Showroom of Steam, and a member of the international Strange Dreams Surreal Art Collective. She lives and works in Seattle and regularly assists with curating & art installation for a number of galleries around the Northwest. She can usually be found covered in oil paint, watercolour, engine grease, and cat hair.
Braden's little black kitten, Diesel, is her constant companion & artistic muse. Ghost & Earl Grey are her newest studio assistants and aspire soon to follow in Diesel's paw prints.
