Fine Arts Studio

Q5: What medium does the artist work in?

A5: All artwork in the vanitas collection was meticulously hand drawn using a stylus and a Wacom Intuos 3 Graphics Tablet with the help of graphics software such as Illustrator, Photoshop and Painter IX. This rather forgiving medium allows the artist to rework every detail over and over again until the desired photorealistic effect is achieved and until the mind's eye is never entirely certain whether the image produced is a still life painting in the finest tradition of realism or a staged photograph recreating a fake reality. The eery sensation produced by looking at an image that seems not to fall entirely within the realm of reality or that of fiction is one of the hallmarks of the vanitas collection and of the artist's style.
