Description

Description

"This painting is part of an ongoing exploration of the blurry line between digital and physical modes of creating and perceiving.
The work operates as a tromp l’oeil, a type of painting that creates a visual illusion of depth and physicality. Traditionally tromp l’oeil is about creating a realistic representation of a real world object, whereas this painting is a representation of 3D rendered abstract shapes - simultaneously handmade and computer rendered, 2D and 3D, physical and digital.
This work also contains an augmented reality (AR) element, if you visit the filter tab on my profile @dave.court on instagram, you should be able to activate a filter called ‘Big Pic Frankston’ which will be triggered by aiming your camera at the painting." Dave Court.
