~RICHARD DUPONT/LEVER HOUSE
RICHARD DUPONT – ‘TERMINAL STAGE’
MARCH 14 – MAY 3, 2008
LEVER HOUSE LOBBY GALLERY – 390 PARK AVE – NY
Nine figures, ea. approx. 80 ins. tall in cast polyurethane resin
these larger than life-size free standing self-portraits – started with a full body laser scan, and then through the use of computer programming, DUPONT maneuvers the forms into surreal shapes which were then converted into a three dimensional model and cast.
ABY ROSEN, of LEVER HOUSE has indeed assembled a stunning public art piece with this show of RICHARD DUPONT’S eerie futuristic polyresin figures – presented with flair and audacity in the transparency of the building’s street level floor-to-ceiling glass walled entrance lobby.

Glenn O’Brien was previously an editor, and (art director!) at INTERVIEW back in the day, “when he was about 24” – before the COLACELLO reign. He left to go work for ROLLING STONE, as their NY bureau chief.
