Jason DeMarte's large-scale digital photographs juxtapose idyllic natural landscapes with the visual gluttony of consumerism. Representing the natural world through unnatural elements, his works combine images of plants and animals with discordant artificial elements and processed foods. The synthetic world his creatures inhabit combines romanticized depictions of nature with the hyper-perfection of modern consumerist imagery. DeMarte’s works explore the manipulation of truth in today’s processed culture.
