    “Hyperrealistic”? Some of these are almost cartoon-like in skin texture.

    Words have meanings. She’s not “hyperrealistic” just because that’s the vogue term to use for paintings right now.

      I agree and disagree at the same time Joe. I think you mix up hyperrealism with photorealism. Although it started as the same thing, over time, hyperrealism got a different meaning.

      “Hyperrealists create a false reality, a convincing illusion based on a simulation of reality”

      This artist isn’t just painting a photographical image, she’s presenting us a different reality. She uses the light of the sun to lighten up the skin and make the eyes more glassy and transparent. I agree that it looks like if she’s playing with this cartoonesque-thing.
      We could discuss if what’s she’s showing us is ‘real’ enough, but I don’t think that would be her point. Cause wouldn’t she have become a photographer then?
