Photorealist painters Roberto Bernardi, Ralph Goings, Ben Schonzeit, Luigi Benedicenti, and Pedro Caceres create masterful works that appeal to our senses, particularly that of taste.  Each painting provides an experience of heightened awareness, tempting us, enticing us, and drawing us in. The depth contained within each composition, the contrast of light against dark, and the juxtaposition of rough texture against smooth texture results in rich, painterly works that illustrate the masterful technique employed by Photorealists.
