The latest evolution in the ever-changing art world combines cutting-edge digital photographic technology with traditional painting techniques.
The undisputed leader in this field, T.M. Glass’ hyper-real creations are constructed in a computer with digital input from a high resolution, 150-megapixel prototype Danish camera and a digital painting tablet that enables the artist to paint with techniques used by 17th, 18th and 19th century artists. This amazing combination has harnessed the emerging medium in bold new ways to create gorgeous, oversized still life paintings featuring lushly colored flowers masterfully arranged in intricate vases that appear 3- dimensional.
Glass is inspired by the rich colors found in nature and has developed a unique color palate – that doesn’t include primary colors – and employs color theory to skillfully mix the hues on the computer. In the artist’s studio a large format six-foot digital printer is connected to the computer, and the artist personally prints each picture there to ensure that each archival pigment print is perfect.
