Feel free to yell if need be. 😅
I’ll give you one guess as to the type of art the guy I quoted makes:
I feel like this is a good time to point out that photorealism and hyperrealism are two different things. Hyperrealism grew out of photorealism and I certainly enjoy it much more.
Photorealism is literally just copying exactly what you see in a photograph, which makes photography a much more expressive form of art than photorealism.
In my mind, photorealism is therefore an imitation of an expression of life, which is why I made the tongue in cheek comment about it being meaningless. On the record: I don’t think it’s actually meaningless and I tried to hint at that.
But like…this is one of my favorite quotes, so I dunno:
“Vanity of vanities; all is vanity.”
Thanks for the thoughtful response, D! 😄
