For the past year Richard Tuschman has been making images inspired by Edward Hopper’s intimate interior scenes. He likes the idea of creating open-ended narratives that hopefully evoke some of the complexities of the human condition. The images are digital montages using diaramas I make for the sets. Sometimes he makes the diaramas first, and sometimes he photographs the models first. The pieces are very labor intensive. Making the miniature sets gives him a great deal of control, a nice contrast to working on the computer, and he loves combining all the different aspects of the process.
