Postcard Construction #15 by Brian Dupont

New York artist Brian Dupont recently sent me a mail art work from his Postcard Construction series. I figured this was a perfect starting point to post items I’ve collected from other artists. Dupont creates specific objects within a framework of abstract painting. From his Artist’s Statement: “My recent work has begun to focus on the visual possibilities inherent in language; I take the written (or printed) word as source material, stressing and distorting the text through a process of painting, erasure, and repainting.”

I’m pleased to have a color field construction absent of text – a chance to place one’s own ideas into a work on a tableau that has had its face completely distorted from its original purpose.
