Digging the large-scale, photorealistic paintings of Linnea Strid, who has an interesting fascination with cascading water and the ways in which light refracts through it.

In 1907 Eadward Muybridge developed a photographic process to win a bet that all four of a horse’s hooves leave the ground at one time as they gallop. He set trip wires attached to the shutters of dozen cameras along a race track to prove his point.
Not content to leave it at that, he continued to examine other phenomena with his new technique. In particular, he was fascinated by running water, developing hundreds of freeze-frame stills of water cascading.
Though photo-realism leaves me cold, these paintings remind me of Muybridge’s groundbreaking work in Photography
