French artist Hubert Duprat creates in a world that MONA, the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Australia, loves exploring - evolutionary and organic processes.
Hubert Duprat’s self-taught practice exists in the space between artistic heritage and investigation of the world – a true collaboration of artistry and science. His experiments have formed a body of work over a number of decades that evokes both prehistoric symbolism and technical adaptation. His intention isn’t to surprise or to create ‘out of the blue’; each one of his pieces is the result of a precise and tangible moment that pinpoints a significant experience. He stands at the crossing of two worlds: the world of free artistic expression, and the world of rationally organised artifacts.
