Photorealism, what's it all about?
Earlier this week, Mrs. Quinet brought up an exhibit at NOMA about photorealism. Photorealism is defined as"a genre of art that encompasses painting, drawing and other graphic mediums, in which an artist studies a photograph and then attempts to reproduce the image as realistically as possible in another medium."Basically, it''s a painting that looks like a picture. It's really really REALLY cool. The exhibit at NOMA is outstanding, and you honestly can't believe the images aren't photographs. I loved the exhibit so much, I wanted to post some of the images here. Enjoy, and go see more at NOMA! It's on view until January 25th.
