MIXED METHODS     

PHOTOGRAPHER NATHALIE HENNIS STYLING ART DIRECTION & ILLUSTRATION LAURIE VAN HOUTS


AS TWO OF ART’S MAJOR MEDIUMS, PAINTING AND PHOTOGRAPHY ARE TYPICALLY PERCEIVED AS ENTIRELY INDEPENDENT PRACTICES. THOUGH IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR AN ARTIST TO DABBLE IN BOTH BRUSHWORK AND CAMERA WORK SEPARATELY, SOME CREATIVES EVEN COMBINE THE CRAFTS WITHIN THE SAME PIECE. IN THIS COLLECTION OF PAINTINGS MERGED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS, WE EXPLORE THE MANY WAYS THAT MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS HAVE MASTERED THIS FORM OF MIXED MEDIA.

The selected works predominantly span surreal portraiture and whimsical landscapes.  Most, however, are digitally-altered composites. No matter the method, graphic designer  Laurie van Houts and photographer Nathalie Hennis proves that painting and photography are a perfect match.
