Artist Richard Heipp explores the rich and evolving relationship between painting and photography. He is interested in perception, challenging the mechanisms of making paintings by hand, machine or the studied combination of both. His work also reflects on and challenges the functions of the eye as he positions viewers at the crossroads of looking and seeing.

As such Heipp describes his paintings as “photocentric” addressing the role photography plays in the way we perceive imagery. They are not intended to be merely based on mechanically produced images, but are instead highly crafted air-brushed simulations of photographs and or computer scanned images. At first glance Heipp’s hyperrealistic works deceptively appear to be photographs or some type of digitally reproduced images, but closer inspection reveals this as an illusion.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 30.
