Bill Braun    more about the artist
space
space
space Trompe L'Oeil (French... "deceives the eye") a type of painting , usually a still-life, which by means of various illusionist devices persuades the viewer that he is looking at the objects actually represented. Successful Trompe L'Oeil occupies a very shallow space behind the picture-plane, or actually seems to project beyond the picture surface (Dictionary of Art Terms - the Thames and Huson).

Mr. Braun's paintings are impressive feats of hyper-realism. What appears to be the ingredients for a third grade art project of cut out construction paper, masking tape, staples and brown craft paper loosely assembled on the wall is in reality a tight and precise execution of acrylic paint on a flat canvas.

The deception of the eye doesn't only linger for a moment as much Trompe L'Oeil does, but continues to trick the viewer on and on and again and again. These works are a must see for any contemporary collector.
