Sarah Dupré


As a native of Louisiana, Sarah Dupré cites the scorching of sugarcane fields as inspiration for her work. “I’d watch the sugarcane fields, towering above my body, be set ablaze by a fire that expanded until it scorched the crop down to dust and ash. Black clouds billowed overhead while the reaffirming fragrance of gas and diesel signaled the arrival of a new season.” Dupré’s work explores this cyclical process that is imperative to regeneration. Buried with charcoal and flooded with turpentine, her canvases capture the plumes of dust that are needed for a new and fertile figure-ground to emerge.

The individual moments within the cycle of death and regrowth lends themselves to the concept of a short-lasting infinity. Dupré uses graphite, oils, tar, house paint, acrylics, pigments, and pastels to create layered abstract paintings that are both gestural and dense. Expressive and tactile, Dupré’s compositions strike a balance between weighted and airy marks.


作为路易斯安那州本地人,莎拉·杜普雷 (Sarah Dupré) 将甘蔗地的灼热作为她工作的灵感来源。 “我会看着高耸在我身体上方的甘蔗田被一场大火点燃,大火将农作物烧成灰烬。乌云在头顶翻腾,而汽油和柴油的清新香气则预示着新季节的到来。” Dupré 的作品探索了这种对再生必不可少的循环过程。她的画布被木炭掩埋并充满松节油,捕捉到了新的肥沃的人物背景出现所需的灰尘。

死亡和再生循环中的个别时刻适合短暂的无限的概念。 Dupré 使用石墨、油、焦油、室内涂料、丙烯酸树脂、颜料和粉彩来创作层次分明的抽象画,既有手势又有浓密。 Dupré 的作品富有表现力和触觉,在加权和轻盈的标记之间取得了平衡。
