American, b. 1968

Sculptor Richard Dupont explores issues of the human body, self-perception, and identity. Using body scan technology, Dupont creates outsized nude polyurethane figures of himself, manipulating each replica so that the sculptures appear distorted from all but one angle, and otherwise seem flattened, widened, or wavy. “It's not just retinal, it's also physiological,” he says. “There's a queasiness, an anxiety caused by the brain not being able to understand the two things at once.” In the installation, Terminal Stage (2008), nine of Dupont’s works were displayed in a glass room, creating an intentionally discomfiting and voyeuristic viewer experience.
