Plastica

The work of Jason DeMarte challenges our assumptions about what it means to document the natural world. At first glance, it's not clearly evident what is amiss in DeMarte's images which typically juxtapose nature with photoshopped objects and various kitsch elements. The scenes are real enough, but a closer look reveals an unapologetic use of digital manipulations in order to remind us about our artificial relationship with nature and our fetishism of consumer objects.
