Sharon Butler photoblogs a visit to the studio of Brian Dupont.
Butler writes: "Working on hollow, square, aluminum beams, Brian Dupont paints snippets of found text such as passages from Beckett, Richard Serra's verb list drawing, and narratives written by friends… Dupont and I discussed the nature of text, and the difference between writing something by hand and using a typeface… But ultimately Dupont is interested in how we apprehend information. 'I want to force the viewer to reassess their relation to both the text and object,' he says. 'Because all sides can't be viewed simultaneously, the complete text is only comprehended as an abstract construction.' "
