Photoreality Abstracted and Repainted

Digital imaging has forever changed the boundries between photography and traditional two-dimensional art like painting and drawing.

As a painter adds brush strokes to a blank canvas, the image is transformed from very abstract, to less abstract, then into a photorealistic representation of the actual subject.

Digital photography reverses this process. As detail is creatively removed, photorealism is transformed into more abstract images that resemble paintings or drawings.

Images here range from photorealistic representations of flowers, creatures, scenic views, and odds & ends, to more stylistic, painterly, or abstracted interpretaion of the same subjects.
