Among the exhibited works, Some are dated from previous decades as quotations from unfolding from the turn of the century. The recent works feature radical renewal. The light moves as leading and articulation element. The pictorial plan consists of expanding color areas, built by brush strokes with a concentric and radial and rhythm to create surfaces that evoke or configure horizons and chromatic landscapes. The technique of Duprat is the varnish, in the color results from the superposition of layered pigments. On screen the means employed is the oil, While on paper it uses oil, oily pastel, watercolor and pencil.

The show, that was displayed earlier in the MUBE, Brazilian Museum of Sculpture, in São Paulo, comes with the book "Limits/Boundaries", edited in 2015, and new catalog edited by National Library. In the text of presentation of the book, Vera Pedrosa marks the transformation in the work of mark Duprat from the six years of their stay in Japan, from 2000 to 2006, When your painting comes out of the Studio and turns to the description of nature with renewed vigour.
