In All That Glitters, Raissa Venables intricately creates each image from many different photographs of interior spaces, becoming an alternate reality for the space being photographed.
…highly saturated color photographs of interior spaces that are excessively opulent – old, modern or manufactured. I meticulously construct an image from dozens of photographs taken of a particular room in order to present a more encompassing visual experience of the place. As I photographically reconstruct these rooms, I experience the spaces in an obsessive manner that allows me to know them intimately. I do away with photography’s conventional one point perspective as I play with multiple vanishing points. My new perspectives form impossible architectural puzzles that seek to conjure, deceive and disorient. The result is the creation of glittering, dreamlike and other worldly manifestations of already fantastic interior environments.
