I use 3-D software to layer images over computer-generated models. The resulting design is made into a painting. This technique of mapping one image onto another has a formal conceit I’m attracted to: through a subtle shift in perspective a thing can appear totally different than it did before. It is impossible to see both perspectives at the same time, requiring that you reorient your position for the other perspective to become clear. Like staring at a Magic Eye pattern until an image emerges, the shift is very dramatic. You can clearly pinpoint when you change your mind.
