Georges Rousse & the Durham Project

Although french artist Georges Rousse is a photographer, his work contains a lot of painting. His works are photographs of paintings done on buildings which are made to look like overlays of colour. From the single point perspective of rousse’s camera, his paintings are made to appear 2-dimensional. In reality you would see that the paintings are strategically done in 3 dimensions. This illusion is what makes rousse’s work so intriguing. His ‘durham’ project is currently the subject of the documentary “bending space”, a fitting tile to describe rousse’s work.
