Artist Jason de Graaf creates astonishingly photorealistic acrylic paintings that showcase his ability to convincingly render glass marbles, metal spheres, and other complex translucent and reflective objects and surfaces.
My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, an illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface. I try to use objects as a vehicle to express myself, tell a story or least hint at something beyond what is actually painted. Therefore I try to choose objects that have meaning to me or are artifacts from my life.
