Russ McIntosh, Northern VA Member Since September 2008 Artist Statement The approach I take with my artwork is very distinct, in that I incorporate numerous photographs into a very unique composition. I take inspiration for my art from the surrealists. I'm particularly fascinated by Dali's double images in his artwork - how you can look at those pieces and always find something new hidden within them.
When I was a child, I often laid on my back and stared up at the clouds and would see shapes and images floating high above me. Often times, complete scenes would unfold in front of me. With a vivid imagination I try to present the same essence within my own artwork. If you look at the shadow shapes and highlights within the image, other objects will start to take focus.
