Digital Still Life

Arts and Culture Frankston



"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.
