I’m a fan of technical skill and precision (I’m sure you’ve noticed). Photorealism, or “hyperrealism” are of the “floor routine” of painting, inclusive of the splits, aerial cartwheels, and a series of round-off back handsprings. Very showy.
As with photography, the work relies largely on the composition. Artist Jason de Graaf’s completely focused paintings certainly make my shutter stop.
