‘Leopard Spotted Horse with Dalmatians in a Landscape’ - Ripley 2017
Planning and primary photography for this large-scale piece was completed throughout 2015/16, and the final picture composed between January and April 2017.
Over 500 hours of finely detailed work, the image is a composition of 60 individual ultra high-resolution medium-format images; 23 x Dalmatians, 1 x Leopard Spotted Horse, 36 x sky and landscape. Scale: 26,991 x 11,998 pixel.
The artwork is constructed using panoramas many pictures wide and many layers deep, with shifts of focus throughout the image. This time-intensive process means that every element of the picture is rendered sharp and in-focus by eliminating 99% of the optical depth-of-field artefacts normally associated with traditional photography (see; method).
"Excited by the originality of this artist's work. Such a feel of the equine master painters but without a shadow of pastiche. Using modern methods to create a wholly new art form. Deepest respect"
