Gallery Floating Acrylic (Photographic print on metallic paper mounted on acrylic).

DESCRIPTION

My love for Italian Renaissance and Dutch Golden Age painting inspires my choice of composition, colours and post-production treatment, blurring the boundaries between photography and painting.

This portrait is based on Caravaggio's 'Boy with a Basket of Fruit', 1593-1594. Whenever I re-create Old Master's paintings, I marvel at the timelessness and universality they still have today. However, every subject is also unique, and apart from re-creating a composition, the image has to come alive with the unique qualities of my subject.
