Back in 1994, Rhode Island assemblage artist Thomas Deininger began looking at perception and illusion. Starting with found objects, allowing natural chance to be the artist's assistant, Deininger discovered that he could manipulate appearances to form clearly visible objects which disappear when the angle is shifted. By using an ingenious method of layering textures of material with colour and image, the assemblages take on an almost magical ability to become fantastic life-like sculptures. With the use of 3D and 2D work, Deininger recreates famous images and well known items for us from all manner of non-related media. Maybe he's asking us whether the reality we know and have become engrossed within is not truly as it seems? Watch this video and also hook up with Thomas Deininger on Instagram.
