Digital Matte Painting
In collaboration with Ryan Hopkinson, Andrew Stellitano & The Forge we set out to create a series of images that would forge awe-inspiring nature with the refinement of modern interior design. Key visual cues were taken from the paintings of John Martin, Constable and Friedrich as reference to the landscapes, interior tones and lighting. We used modern furniture pieces supplied by designers Swedese & Skandium to add specific textures to the set whilst the rest of the backgrounds, mirrors and tables were designed and made by Andrew Stellitano. The mirror’s act as the entrance to un-explored worlds, where the interaction of raindrops, clouds and smoke escape into the interior surroundings. The luxury items from Ralph Lauren, Panerai & Armani featured within the images reflect their importance and use within each of the matte painted landscapes.
