Mott Hupfel: Dreams to Reality
Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center is pleased to announce a series of photographs by Mott Hupfel.Hupfel states that he returns again and again to Hopper’s work for inspiration and often for explication when trying to elucidate an idea or a mood. Noting that Hopper was a consummate student of light, having said, “I was more interested in the sunlight on the buildings and on the figures than any symbolism,” Hupfel's study of light is the nexus of his growing series of images. Just as Hopper’s characters seem caught in a moment that serve as a provocation for the viewer to complete the narrative, Hupfel has said he likes to think of the images in this series “as the nuclei for, or maybe the aftermath of a scene I might create for a film” with “some element of human existence, if not a human itself, that I hope will trigger questions in the viewer’s mind about what might happen – or what has happened – there.”
