Underground ‘n’ Through the Roof

Press release from: Red Gate Gallery

Cerebral yet intuitive, Dan Jupp’s work is an exploration of the nuances and psyche. Like a surgeon’s scalpel, it cuts close to the bone. His work has been described as weird, twisted and dark, but if society is mirrored in art, audiences will find it difficult to attack the myopic image they see staring back at them. The work’s intention is to inspire and heal whilst causing a cauterising and purging affect on the audience.
Jupp was born and raised in Jamaica. He grew up in Bangladesh, Singapore and the UK and this nomadic gypsy lifestyle has made an impact on his perspectives of the world. He studied Special Effects at Wimbledon School of Art, London. This is where he learnt his skills as a sculptor; however he has taught himself the skills to become a successful painter. This is Dan Jupp’s second exhibition, following on from his successful debut in May earlier this year.
The title of the show is inspired by Gogol Bordello, a gypsy punk band. His influences range from Bosch to Banksy, Dali, H.R. Giger, Nerdrum, Kahlo, Grey, Mueck, the Chapman Brothers, John Currin. He draws upon literature, life experiences and music, primarily that of TOOL, Bob Marley.
As a practitioner of various types of yoga and meditation and an avid reader of esoterica, Jupp attempts to bring in ideas from Hinduism, mystical Christianity, Sufism and Zen Buddhism. His art derives from a deep psychological and emotional level, all of which drive a metaphysical necessity to heal and improve.
