Photofuzion 2

Robert Vaillancourt

“PHOTOFUZION 2” is a presentation of 18 digital images arranged in 3 different themes that focus our attention to: “The Sky”, “Things Found in Quebec” and ”Winter Grasses”. Using the digital manipulation of original photographs, the artist creates an enhanced experience of the subjects presented. Digital artifacts create a new world of their own. This hyper reality is intended to invite the viewer to see and feel the subjects from a less familiar point of view resulting in a more engaging experience. The images reach beyond the simple representation of a captured moment in time and take us deeper into our subconscious and memory bringing us a more intimate and personal experience.
