  9. Lillian Davenport-Partac

    Holy moly! The things people think of.

  10. Ross

    So basically what he does is cuts out the artwork (poorly), and photographs it with a shallow depth of field? I’m unimpressed.

  11. Raads

    @ Ross, LOL!!!!!! I personally think that too,, but i was told, if you cant do any better, dont critisize!

  12. Gert

    Something tells me Ross is not a fan of Andy Warhol either.

  13. Yuk

    Wow. The use of depth of field in the photos really accentuate the art. Nice work.

  14. James Anzalone

    Really nice, I feel like they are mostly effective if photographed this way? probably not so much if displayed any other way…

  15. Maoh.

    That´s the guy who made the cover for Born Ruffians´s Red Yellow & Blue.
    Great work, great music.

    looks like the artist used a tiltshift filter for the 3d effect

    these are spectacular!

    @Ross Sorry to hear that you were unimpressed. We should look into getting the whole post removed since it’s main goal was to impress you, which it obviously failed at. I can’t wait to see your latest collection of impressive work that you are so well known for.

    There is a great short picture and word essay on some of these by the literary critic Seamus Deane in the Field Day Review from 2008.

    I can almost feel the inspirational moment that set you off!

    Oh & Ross: you have to have the creative inspiration to think of ideas like these in the first place & then the motivation to do it. Many say they ‘they could do it’, but few actually do.Having done 3D work myself, I can tell you that the process in itself is no mean feat & you need knowledge & the ability to portray artistic perspective to get it right.
