The Faux Life – series


Digitally composed photographs

Artist Statement

How we perceive something as “real” is the focus of this series of images. The photographic source materials (fake flowers, toy animals, and gummy bears) are visually engaging and animated so that they appear rich and therefore real. Imagination and its relationship with physical reality are at the heart of these digitally composed photographic images.
