Gallery TON & superrealism

The art of superrealism

Within superrealistic works of art, the artist tries to render the work more than reality. It surpasses reality, as it were. A painting or sculpture can be chosen for this. But the starting point is always to capture reality in such a way that the viewer experiences the work of art with a pleasant surprise. Because a work that falls under superrealism shows more than people at first perceive.

Superrealism or hyperrealism

Superrealism is another word for hyperrealism. In this genre, objects from consumer society or everyday life are often chosen as subjects. The artist bases this on the accuracy of the representation. Hyperrealistic art weeks leave no room for subjectivity. The work has been entrusted to the canvas down to the smallest detail.

Super realistic sculptors

For those who think that only paintings can be depicted as superrealistic, this art movement still has surprises in store. The superrealist has also made his way into the visual arts. Usually the human figure is at the center of this. Facial expressions, hands, feet, whole bodies, clothed or nude. The human body has such a realistic representation that they cause surprise and astonishment in the viewer. The statues are often made of synthetics.
