Photomontage artist, Richard Tuschman works with digital and traditional methods of creating imagery, including making overlays from his own paintings and photographs – of which I have begun to do myself. I am intrigued by the way he combines organic elements with distressed and corroded surfaces, juxtaposing the qualities of beauty with decay.
The way that Tuschman also illuminates his scenes with an ethereal light, is a quality that I also want to bring to my imagery, lending to a soft, intimate and dream like aesthetic.
