The Pixel Painter

L.A.-based photographer and installation artist Jeremy Kidd presents his new work Fictional Realities at the Laguna Art Museum.
A great lover and keen observer of the American West, "the edgy British transplant merges evocations of architecture and nature," writes art ltd in its profile of the artist. "The Laguna show consists of a series of images depicting manipulated urban streetscapes and architectures whose forms have been distorted into final compositions presenting complete 360-degree views."
Kidd's approach is not unlike that of landscape painter. He actually started his career as a painter, and still refers to himself as a one, "painting with pixels." On-line catalog here.
