Introduction

 

Michel Duport lives and works in Paris and Ardèche.

 

Michel Duport?s work is a reflection on painting turned into sculpture. Reliefs, little objects placed on the wall such as paintings, can be linked to the polymorphic architecture of Poliakoff?s paintings, which are bidimensionnals. Michel Duport?s sculptures are a pretext to tridimensional including shadows and colours as well as reflection effects between colours.  

The spectator multiplies his points of views by moving, and colour shades play with lights and shadows. Gazes displacement could be a parody of painter?s doubts and hesitations during his creative process.
