YSABEL LEMAY

At first glance, you might think you are looking at a hyper-realistic painting. However, Lemay's innovative technique is a lengthy process during which hundreds of photographs are taken and light and visual properties are attuned. She then assembles one detail at a time in a painterly fashion to form a single composition.
