Rory Krupp: Fluffing Reality

On view through February at the Dublin Arts Council is Rory Krupp: Fluffing Reality, a solo exhibition of contemporary watercolor paintings.

Krupp titles his artworks with short phrases such as “The sound of confidence” and “Who wants to be found.” He defines this collection as “Revolution, the sound of confidence and other excellent inventions: A compendium of words and images promoting a better way.”

Rory Krupp is an Ohio resident who currently divides his time between Columbus and Cincinnati. He has shown his artwork in galleries in the United States and Singapore and at art fairs in New York and Chicago. He was awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship in 2002 and has served as an artist in residence in Vermont and Indiana.

The exhibition will be on view Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday through Fridays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 2 pm.

"Music Sets Tone For Vibrant Watercolors"

Review in Columbus Dispatch by Melissa Starker ~

With his iPod providing a soundtrack, Rory Krupp conjures up playful stories in his mind that take shape as collections of controlled watercolor lines, abstract shapes and the occasional well-placed bleed.

"I think of a narrative, a type of theme, and use pieces to fill in the blanks," Krupp said. "It's not always quite linear, but it's like songs: They're not all linear."
