I’ve always been a fan of trompe-l’œil, or the art of using realistic imagery to trick the eye into believing that what it is seeing truly exists in three dimensions. Using a mixture of digital photography and 3D computer graphics, I create images that appear to exist somewhere in reality, but do not. This series “takes place” in a fictional warehouse district somewhere in Seattle and is largely computer graphics. Other series rely more heavily on pure photography. Either way, I like to explore themes of aloneness and introspection, but I never want the viewer to leave the image without a feeling of hope. Even if only a little.
