CPA presents Richard Tuschman’s extraordinary photographic series, Hopper Meditations as well as new work from Europe. Inspired by the paintings of artist Edward Hopper, Tuschman creates dollhouse-size dioramas and digitally marries them with live models. The dioramas are built, painted, and photographed by Tuschman in his studio. He photographs the models against plain backgrounds and completes the composites in Photoshop.
Richard Tuschman began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990s, developing a style that synthesized his interests in photography, painting and assemblage. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and awards include Prix de la Photographie Paris, Critical Mass Top 50, and Center Project Launch Juror’s Award among others. His photographs have been published on numerous online magazines/journals including Slate, LensCulture, LensScratch and Huffington Post. He has lectured widely on his artistic techniques and creative process and teaches workshops nationally. He currently lives in New York and Europe.
