Moving 2D Images Into 3D Space
 v.3 John Antoine Labadie


Introduction During undergraduate work (more than 40 years ago) I trained first as a sculptor, and then as a painter. When other creative opportunities became available my work quickly expanded into photography, graphic design, and scientific illustration. Even so, except for my initial work in sculpture, almost all works produced were in flat, two-dimensional forms that required only the considerations of the length and width of the product.
 


For the past 20 years I have been working almost exclusively with digital tools which have allowed me to elaborate my work in various 2D formats where the primary consideration for each work was also the length and width of each piece. During this time I have evolved a creative portfolio of literally thousands of digital images, but only a very few of these works have been 3D forms. Even so, I have always been investigating ways of working in 3D space where the consideration of depth was added into the creative equation. 


The 3D images contained in this portfolio are based on my original 2D images. But here a Z axis (depth) has been added into the existing X axis (width) and Y axis (height) existing in my digital work. These experimental images are my initial investigations into this way of working. All were accomplished between June 2018 and April 2019. 
 


My primary visual influence in developing these works is the French Surrealist artist Yves Tanguy whose mysterious paintings I have admired for many years. I know that there is much more to be found out working with these types of image forms. The investigations continue ….
