Who • The Artists
Rhys Himsworth’s works create a narrative between the environment of fantasy and the expression of reality. These are real people in real spaces so it is the expression of that reality. The fantasy element lies in unlocking the stories lurking behind this reality: of vast, hidden worldswhich the image facilitates and provides a clue or a hint to.
It is all about evoking an atmosphere where reality and fantasy blend within the pictorial space and trigger associations for the viewer. For Himsworth, it is significant to draw back the curtain, so to speak, on an image to reveal its details and the ephemeral nature of the reality that is being captured.
