The Painted Photogragh - Passionately dedicated to the vast possibilities of digital photography as both a medium and a cultural epoch, West’s
narratives draw inspiration from the total diversity offered by the visual arts. While the tableau photography of Stan
Douglas and Jeff Wall inform West’s understanding of photography as a form of contemporary communication, the
paintings of David Hockney and Edward Hopper provide evident aesthetic direction.

The Painted Photogragh - Passionately dedicated to the vast possibilities of digital photography as both a medium and a cultural epoch, West’s

A wide range of environments and character types
are explored in the works of New York City-based
Dean West. The Australian-born (1983) artist who
studied at the Queensland College of Art, is best
known for his intricate and highly staged
photographs that take everyday occurrences
beyond the realm of natural reality. Extraordinary in
their tonal range, digital clarity, and artistic vision,
West’s meticulously choreographed scenes,
character studies, and atmospheric landscapes
powerfully yet synthetically link needs to desires
and documentation to invention.
