Trained architect Matt Duffin's sparse illustrations of symbolically loaded objects, anthropomorphic donkeys, and children's toys, are full of dark and blank spaces that make their subjects seem isolated and alone to the point of dread. Extreme sources of light up the drama of Duffin's images, and despite the storybook-ish quality of his wax drawings, they convey a sense of impending doom.
