Combining painting and photography, German artist Marc Lüders (born 1963) creates complex scenes that challenge viewers' expectations of reality and illusion. Through a painstaking process, the artist transposes painted figures and objects onto photographs of existing landscapes--interventions that are often imperceptible at first glance. This survey publication features the artist's latest series devoted to American supermarkets.

The East Side Gallery is a section of the Berlin Wall that was painted by 118 artists from 21 countries in 1990--an artistic comment on the political changes of the post-Wall years. Marc Lüders' amazing trompe l'oeil paintings on photographs insert figures in front of sections of this historic collaborative artwork.
