Acrylic hyperrealistic paintings [Fluid mechanics: Acrylic on panel & Bedlam: Acrylic on canvas] by Jason de Graaf. Via
Mr. de Graaf told Poets & Artists magazine that his paintings are about creating the ‘illusion of verisimilitude’, filtered through his own vision of the world.
‘Though I use photographs as the image source, my goal is not to reproduce of document faithfully what I see, but to create an illusion of depth and sense of presence not found in photographs,’ he said.
‘Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them.
‘Lately I have been trying to imbue my paintings with a sense of narrative and lyricism.’
