About Me

[i]Rusty McDonald is a fine art photographer and visual artist based in North Carolina. His work is multi layered photographic illustration, within the magic realism and imaginary realism genres. Steeped in esotericism and symbolism his images exist in both realistic and fantastical worlds. He has crafted a meticulous process that combines photography, and digital artistry techniques, such as texturizing, layering and compositing, with digitally painted backgrounds, real photographic elements and intuition, a kind of visual alchemy. The result are atmospheric images, elusively romantic and timeless in their historical placement, painterly yet subtle, imbued with a slight wink towards old master art. A lifelong study of mythology, ancient storytelling and the world's mysteries. A few of his influences are esoteric traditions, late and classical antiquity. metaphysics, literature, nature and religion.[/i]
