Richard Dupont created this new edition of 30 unique prints with master printer Erika Greenberg Schneider at her shop, Blue Acier. in Tampa, Florida, in the days leading up to the Gulf Coast landfall of Hurricane Idalia. Originally an Italian girl’s name meaning “behold the sun,” the title also references Dupont’s recent watercolors and their preoccupation with light, water, landscape, and an isolated figuration. The woodblock printing drew inspiration from traditional Japanese techniques, while the screen print connects to the graphic art of 70s surf culture. The variable edition embraces the ephemeral interplay of light and shadow in nature. Behold the Sun, Dupont’s second edition with Planthouse is his first print publication to emerge from his ongoing watercolor series begun in 2020.
