Painting the World with a Camera. Seeing the Unseen
Alex Deiser’s style of photographs depicts an attempt to reconnect with the surroundings in which he sees reflections of life. This artist challenges viewers to look at the photography through his creative eyes and asks his audience to let their imaginations flow. The photography challenges the unseen to emerge. Look at one of the pieces and you’ll look beyond the obvious- a steel door, flowers, a tree stump, a bridge to see the unseen. Each of his images have a story to tell, have been blessed by mother nature’s impact and, now, emerge in a captive, creative collection.
Alex's images are photographs, printed on canvas that are then further worked as paintings. Clear paint is used to stylize or emphasize aspects of the photographic materials, to add texture and layering to reproduce the original inspiration. This process is a hybrid between painting and photography which the Artist calls “Painting with the Camera”
