reinterpreting the visual landscape
Life is not static but ever-changing and dynamic. As we move through space and time, our focus as well as our interpretation of reality is constantly in flux. Art that documents the single, slice-of-life scene is really recording only a minute portion of what we actually experience. Human perception is much more multidimensional, receiving input from all the senses. Sight, sound, smell, taste and touch form a cumulative sensation. Artists who choose to break away from the traditional, representational narrative approach to image-making opt to convey a deeper, more true-to-life impression, as opposed to recording the mere artifacts of the visual landscape.
