Trompe L’oeil Series

The French phrase “trompe l’oeil” (pronounced trawmp loy) means “to fool the eye”. When certain works of art are given this descriptive title, visual trickery is implied. It is the sole intention of the trmpe l’oeil artist to create an image so perfectly rendered that the viewer is convinced, if only for a few moments, that flat, painted objects have real weight and substance or that clay sculptures are actually soft, flowing fabrics. When we fall to the deception, it delights us to realize that we have been duped. - Robert Moler
