Richard Tuschman (b. 1956) exhibits work from his series of photographs entitled Hopper Meditations, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper.
To create these works, Tuschman builds dollhouse-sized dioramas, which he then photographs and digitally incorporates life-sized models–including himself–to create realistic scenes reminiscent of Hopper’s imagery. As in many of Hopper’s well-known paintings, the characters in Tuschman’s pictures are imbued with a sense of anticipation, seemingly vacillating between introspection and isolation.
Tuschman received a BFA from Michigan University and has shown his work throughout the U.S. and abroad. He lives and works in New York City.
