Judy D Shane's photographic artworks explore an interdisciplinary dialogue between painting and photography that question the space between the two disciplines from both manual and digital perspectives. By using focally stacked photographs to examine the micro world of hand painted brushstrokes as seen through the macro lens, she creates large scale photographic composites that exhibit a three-dimensional realism and a hyper-materiality while remaining grounded in a two-dimensional format. Her work continually navigates between the real and the unreal, and provides the viewer with a magnified sense of rich colour and detailed texture that cannot be so easily observed by the naked eye.
