High relief photo-paintings are dystopian places, with ruins and contemporary urban landscapes. The photos acquire volume, with images expanded by sewing and stitched on canvas, becoming a 3D work. The acrylic paint exacerbates depths. It is a landscape with a sculptural effect. What I intend is to subvert what is a photo image. The viewer will have to enlarge the photo on the screen. The video helps to understand. https://rb.gy/io0i2a
