ADAM STENNETT IS SIMPLY REAL

ADAM STENNETT, AN ALASKAN BORN ARTIST WHO NOW RESIDES IN BROOKLYN, USES HIS PAINTBRUSH LIKE ONE WOULD USE THEIR CAMERA. HE CAPTURES MOMENTS IN TIME WITH SUCH A VIVID STARKNESS, IT'S HARD TO RECOGNIZE THAT THE IMAGE IS AN ARTISTS' RENDERING. THE SITUATIONS THAT HE ADDRESSES WITH EACH PIECE MANAGE TO BE REALISTIC, YET SLIGHTLY INCONCEIVABLE. HIS ABILITY TO USE COLOR TO CONVEY LIGHT AND TEXTURE ALLOWS HIM TO MAKE EACH IMAGE AS REAL AS POSSIBLE. CHECK SOME OF MY FAVORITE PIECES OF HIS BELOW.
REMEMBER THIS MAN IS A PAINTER, NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER!
