Doors into Daydreams Art Exhibition Brings Bright Colors to Magazine Street (sponsored)
Uptown has become more colorful.
Mason Dupré, originally from Louisiana via St. Charles Parish and currently living in upscale neighborhoods, is delighted to contribute his work to historic St. Magazine. The colorful new art exhibit, “Doors into Daydreams”, is currently on display. featured at 3701 Magazine Street. until June 20.
The inspiring collection focuses on mental health, while also bringing a vivid experience to life through the use of brilliant acrylics on delicate large-scale glass panes.
The exhibition “Doors into Daydreams” is an immersive conceptual exhibition, in which the artist uses her medium to communicate the autobiographical experience of bipolar disorder. In an effort to raise awareness and give back to the local community, net ticket sales from the show will be donated to NAMI New Orleans and We Help NOLA.
Dupré’s style is deeply influenced by the abstract impressionists of the 20th century, notably Rothko, Newman, Motherwell, and Pollock, as he uses color theory and technique to communicate deep feelings and experiences.
While much of his work consists of long brushstrokes, his current collection on display focuses on perfection of thought and form; after applying the paint to the glass, he goes through a methodical process of sculpting perfect geometric shapes into the painting.
Dupré currently works with hand-cut, self-made, laminated glass panes, and then manipulates acrylic paints through them using industrial tools such as squeegees and trowels. He then traces shapes from the paint using razors and glass cutters, creating a distinctive look.
While exploring the weight of bass, Dupré’s vibrant primary colors signal a rebirth and are ultimately a celebration of the return to his new spirit and limitless new self.
