Soapbox Gallery is pleased to present Gravity and Array, a solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based painter Brian Dupont.
Brian Dupont studies the transmission — and distortion — of the visual aspects of information within the framework of abstract painting. In each painting he uses diagrams, scientific images, written language, symbols, and musical notation to establish an underlying pattern or structure, which he then stresses through a process of editing, erasure, and re-transcription. The final image emerges from these accumulations and removals of layers of paint and reverberates with contemporary anxieties about the threat of collapse, decay, miscommunication, and information overload.
Brian Dupont lives and works in Brooklyn. He received his MFA from Cornell University. He has exhibited his work in New York, Kansas City, and Houston. He also writes on art and painting at briandupont.wordpress.com.
