Description by Dominic Advanced Black and White Summer 2009
Artist Statement: 'Escape from Reality: Re-Imagination of Reality For this series, I chose ordinary objects to be re-imagined as something more interesting. Using acetate film overlaying the photographic paper, I superimposed my drawings on the print, transforming its subject into unreality. The contents reflect a playful, daydreaming escape from reality.'
