David Rapoport: a.k.a. RAPORTSKY:

I would like to present to you: the RAPORTSKY website.

I hope that people will like my artworks for their value. In addition, I aspire to inspire (in process), specifically, as each and every discovery is realized.

I seek to reach a broader audience: people who are more brand conscious, and more technically-minded viewers: my works are non-branded, non-commercial, and are of undefined genres.

I hope that my new audience will accept the difference. I am determined that this creative, (perhaps) spiritual, (intelligent) practice of the unknown, will work: with the possibility of extremely profound, positive, and significant results.

I am very thankful.

Yours truly (JGD), RAPORTSKY.




UNTITLED (A COLOR FIELD INTERPRETATION of a METAPHYSICAL PORTRAIT (Part 1)): from David Rapoport on Vimeo.

10:15. Untitled (A Color Field Interpretation of a Metaphysical Portrait (Part 1)): Version 2 (4k version is also available).

The perception: and relating to human subjects, as light.

It can also be about some kind of mental perception, lightness, sensibility, or energy in motion. I believe that photography sees differently than we do, and this is the fascination of it for me. We begin to notice a difference: in the camera eye, and how we would visualize the subject, if we were actually there. This reality shift is the METAPHYSICS: contained in these portraits.

Original (finished) artworks: on paper: each one is 8x10, 20.25x16.25, or 20.25x30.25 inches in size.

(When I Look) i_Consume: from David Rapoport on Vimeo.

05:34. (When I Look) i_Consume:

Please take these pictures for their face value: or for what they are worth:

1) What people consume (we all must do this).
2) Photographs of people who are selling, consuming (or in the act of consumption).
3) The story of shopping in the urban center (and consuming all of the treasures).
4) Odd, conventional, fantastic (and bigger than life).
5) What is sold everywhere (or in your favorite store).
6) What I am consuming: the pictures of people who are consuming.
7) This is a documentary series: the photos were taken out in the field.
8) These photos were made in New York City (2003-2008).
9) i_Consume was one of my Grad School projects (MFA - SVA).

BEYOND the PICTURE: from David Rapoport on Vimeo.

06:14. Photography, Music, and Artist's Narrative: David Rapoport (2010).

Qu.: What is missing from the picture? Ans.: Everything that is outside of the frame, or whatever is not visible. Each photograph is about what is in the frame. The subject matters. What do we communicate in this process?

Thanks to: GuruDev (JGD), Robert, Charles, Elinor, Silvio, Paul, Bruce, Shelly, Peter, Jacqueline, NYU, and SVA for their inspiration. JGD!

NEW YORK as THEME PARK: from David Rapoport on Vimeo.

NEW YORK as THEME PARK:

03:45. This is New York, the way you always wanted it to be. This series happened as a result of some unexpected, dissipation of energy, on paper.

It started as 35mm still film images.

The beginning stages were embellished, with art materials. Somehow, I envisioned what the results would be before the works were completed, specifically: while I was in the process of constructing them.

This interpretation of the urban landscape was created to make others feel more alive, using my personal mind associations of my feelings about the place.

Original (finished) artworks: on paper: each one is 20.25x16.25 inches in size.

Special thanks to GuruDev (JGD), Robert, Peter H., Peter, Arne, Charlelie, SVA, and Art Students League.
