Photorealism and the photorealistic painting cannot exist without Photography and the photograph. My goal is to advance photorealism by incorporating elements beyond the photograph itself. Exploring the way we see the world while challenging the contemporary expectations of Art and the relationship between Painting and Photography.

This work reconsiders the documentation of events and the question of how they can be presented. It is a debate regarding the realm of memory and the realm of experience. It is not a straightforward rendering of reality, but the constant collision of things as they are and things that can be conceived.

We all see the world differently, but hopefully, still find it beautiful.
