After the Breaking of the World by Jesse van Dijk.
I love the sheer scale of this matte and the incredible detail in the construction minutiae.
If you create images and structures that are grounded in reality - that obey the laws of nature, complying with physics - the image becomes more expressive and powerful. I always look for something that could theoretically exist in reality. From my experience, the more you keep achievable possibilities in mind, the more creatively expressive the work becomes. My work allows suspension of disbelief by refusing to engage in the merely nonsensical. If reality is discarded outright, it’s all too easy to default to the stylistically obvious. You find yourself going for the visual archetypes, and cliche is just around the corner. I don’t want to create cliches.
