By working with my hands, I feel that l develop a dialogue with the materials I am working with. From there, a kind of collaboration emerges. It is as if the materials already know what they want to be. I just need to listen and get to work. I make the pieces myself and only use fabricators for the finishes - Felipe Dupouy
I developed a system of embedding my photographic imagery into my designs. I create functional one of a kind art furniture pieces. They are all handmade, produced in Los Angeles, California.
I think of my photography as a portal for people to travel far away inside themselves. All my prints are Lightjet C Prints. They are limited editions and range in size from 30 x 40 inches to mural size. They come with a dated, signed certificate of authenticity that includes the edition number.
Photo-translucents are meant to bring photography off the wall where it has lived since its invention in 1835. Light has always bounced off the surface of traditional photography, Photo-tanslucents are designed to act as portals through which light travels.
