The Big Easy” consists of two large-scale paintings portraying two scenes recognizable to all, The Wedding and The Funeral, both part of Duncan’s series Satire and Storytelling. Keith Duncan was born in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana in 1967. He received a BFA from Louisiana State University, and an MFA from Hunter College (CUNY) New York, NY.
