Georges Rousse: Serious mind trip.


The work of Georges Rousse is immediately confusing, to say the least. His inventive style, “is an intended illusion: what Rousse does is to paint these designs onto the abandoned spaces before taking the photo, correcting for such things as the slope of floors or the interruption of beams, so that the painted designs come together to produce the illusion of a simple, flat design floating on the surface of the photo.” Evidently he’s not the first or only artist to be exercising this style (see Varini) however the work is mind blowing.




Below is a preview of an upcoming documentary on Rousse.
