Dupuy’s painting practice consists of many different ways of making, being influenced by technology, the main focus of his work is to explore how the digital image can inform a painting. He uses the computer as a platform to work on ideas and compositions which is a significant part of his practice.
Whilst Photoshop is a very huge influence on his practice, it is visible to the viewer that the speed and potential of visual results differ greatly from what is achieved in a painting. Rather than the instant nature of digital technology, paintings are a slower process – more measured, complex and physical.
The subject of Dupuy’s work is exploring the relationship between images manipulated on a screen and the physical act of painting. This has involved creating sharp, spatial black and white paintings. Using a limited colour palette is allowing him to reflect more about the form and composition which are the main focuses of the paintings.
In other parts of his practice, he is exploring the idea of spontaneity. Working on paintings that are very much about trying to create intentional and unintentional marks. These marks build up over long periods of time and represent personal anxiety’s within making paintings.
” Art is a way of communicating different ideas and theories through an unlimited amount of different creative processes. ”
