RECEPTION WITH THE ARTIST: SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 13,5-8PM
Richard Tuschman found inspiration in the realist, mid-century paintings of Edward Hopper. Combining his interests in art history, photography, painting and assemblage, Tuschman recreated and re-imagined many of Hopper’s paintings in this body of work. Tuschman’s photographs depict real-life models inhabiting dollhouse-sized dioramas built by the artist. The brooding color palette and textural quality typically found in paintings help to blur the line between painting and photography – at first glance, one is not sure which medium is being employed. The subjects in Tuschman’s narratives are captured in timeless moments of deep thought and reflection.
