Interpretive: mixing photorealism and abstraction
Mixing photorealism and abstraction, using only the scene's elements, is very exciting to me. I can juxtapose the image to itself. It allows me to express new interpretations of the scene's meaning. It helps expand the meaning of a scene into something more significant than what is contained in a mere photorealism perception of the scene.
