Parting Shot: Richard Dupont

Richard Dupont’s larger-than-life nude polyurethane doppelgangers are what he calls “anti-portraits.” They are unembellished ciphers, lacking the defining characteristics of portraiture—hair, blemishes, expression. Dupont’s mannequin-like figures reveal themselves differently from various vantage points­—alternately hyperaccurate or hyperdistorted, crisply rendered or dimpled and spun. Produced with the assistance of General Dynamics body-scanning equipment, Untitled #5 raises questions about sculpture’s response to technological innovation.
Dupont’s solo exhibition “Between Stations” will be on view through January 18 at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, 1701 Main Street, Peekskill. (914) 788-0100; www.hvccca.org.
