About this event

Purchase one of Dowling's one-of-a-kind hand-painted digital composite images and own a piece of digital history in the making! Dowling's fine art composites are artfully curated mirages, created layer upon layer in order to create a work of art as equivalent as possible to the complexity of real life. They are an attempt to control the focal points of the viewer, bending your imagination into uncontrollable shapes and distortions of reality eventually allowing your brain to make sense of the actual images, faces, and objects hidden in the compositions, and the equally untamable expression of the artist himself. As John developed the technique further, clients started to request these surreal and expressionistic pieces as part of the shoots. John became more and more immersed in digitally painting these images and adding more and more detail until this abstract and illusionistic style became John’s standard. After creating a few dozen of these images he realized that viewers would sometimes see the original photos in the composites, and at other times they would “invent” objects in their minds. That led him to discover “Scotomisation.” "Scotomisation" is the psychological tendency in people to see what they want to see and not see what they don't want to see - in situations, in themselves, in everything, even in his composites. Until the truth is unfolded before one's eyes or the artist shares what a person is actually viewing, the illusion continues. It even changes as you focus on a different set of eyes or patterns in John’s composites often fooling or changing the perception of what you are viewing. Though observers of this art experience perception on a daily basis, “perception is not always reality.” Many observers of his art understand it, which has allowed them to analyze it and perceive things more in-depth and therefore making it “a truth.”
