Louie Halpin Parr
'Surface Tension' is a series, which explores representations of material presence through scenes of still life. Inspired by his passion for sculptural forms and material value, Louie Halpin-Parr utilises the physical properties of the objects, as well as the space around them, to create images that accentuate the tension between the flat surface of the photograph and the materiality of the subject matter. With reference to Trompe-L'oeil still life paintings, the photographs simulate physical interaction through visual engagement. This manipulates the viewer's perception in order to question the limitations of photographic representation and how we experience the world around us.
