These photographs by Jason DeMarte are pretty spectacular! At first glance they appear simply luscious...but then...Yikes! I've include a detail of one but you need to blow them up on your screen and really look at what's going on. A brief statement by the artist below. His work reminds me thematically of Walton Ford's watercolors.
I’m interested in creating photographs that merge simulated forms of life and colorful processed foodstuffs with idyllic pop material goods, in an effort to create a dialog of consumption, duplicity and homogenized ecstasy.
