British Artist Used A 110-Year-Old Technique Called Matte Painting To Create Indoor Landscape Photomontages



British visual artist Suzanne Moxhay invites her audience into apocalyptic scenes, made with photomontage. Instead of relying solely on Photoshop, Suzanne uses a 110-year-old technique called matte painting which was popularized by the movies from the 20th century.

A matte painting is usually a painted glass pane that is used to show landscapes or large set pieces. Matte paintings are either filmed on set, where the crew frames them to look like a physical set piece, or they are combined with live footage in post production.
