Laura Breitman's work looks like painting or photography when seen from a distance, but this artist uses thousands of tiny pieces of fabric and paper to create collages often based on photos taken by her husband. Breitman's attention to detail, nuance and lighting makes her trompe l'oeil work very convincing. The details of the photo blend into colour and shape, much the way they would on the journey from eye to brain and back. Sometimes the artist will colour fabric herself to get just the right shade, and uses a grid to work on one square of her project at a time.
