Visual Illusion Extraordinaire: Patent Pending Technique Transforms Complex Images into 3D Juxtaposition Art

posted Jun 11, 2013, 17:41

Rishona Studios is pleased to announce the development of a patent pending technique used to create 3D-like visual illusion in a 2D space. "Unlike most geometrically-based illusion, the juxtaposition technique utilizes three (3) complex photographic images, notes T. Rishona Ellison (Rishona Studios) adding, "The technique is expressive, elegantly blending science, math and art." A scientist by training and Denver-based communications' specialist, Ellison originally developed the juxtaposition technique as a storytelling tool following a December 2012 trip overseas.

Juxtaposition art creates a new "dimension" in accessible interpretative art and storytelling experiences as the technique creates the illusion in true 2D space, without the use of holograms or special glasses. "It's an ice cream sundae for the mind and visual senses, mixing color, content flavor and textures to create an emergent experience with shifting perspectives and new discoveries as the details in the component images reveal themselves within the context of the story, comments Ellison, quickly adding, "An emergent story as well as memories which the viewer writes and constructs for themselves."

Despite the complexity of the component images and physically splitting the images in creating the composite, each image, nonetheless, remains visually intact and distinct. Whether it's a crowded market scene or magnificent vista portraying a sunset or sunrise, a pristine view of the mountains, or a field of winter's grass - nothing of the image or its details is lost and details, which are often overlooked, are now highlighted within each 3D-like segment and the composite image.

Intriguing in their abstract form, yet familiar, the Colorado 2013 series showcases the state's magnificent nature scenes, exploring water, sky, mountain and grassland images photographed in winter and spring. The Israel juxtaposition series - the first created using the technique - includes photographic images embracing the rich history of the country and the people, and explores the themes of transition, spirituality and nature. The recent addition to the Israel collection, "Waters of Life" showcases acacia trees in a "dry" wadi, vineyards surrounding in the Galilee and the roiling Mediterranean waters off the coast of Caesarea.

Like puzzles, juxtapositions art is designed to holistically engage both the left and right sides of brain, evoking visceral responses and cognitive engagement. Ellison is exploring an opportunity to include one of her juxtaposition artworks as a mural in a sensory garden to help promote brain fitness for a community in southern Israel. "Keeping the mind engaged and able to focus is critical at any age, but becomes increasingly important for certain disorders with cognitive impacts, Alzheimer's disease and dementia disorders, in an aging population, as well as for stress and emotional management especially for aging Holocaust survivors and other individuals with PTSD," notes Ellison.

The juxtaposition technique has also been applied to deliver targeted messaging on social action issues action issues with the "Looking at Democracy" challenge and a design proposal on integrating product lifecycle management information onto packaging materials for the sixth Annual International LCM conference. The intriguing images are well-suited to a variety of marketing communications strategies, including logo placement, product range and diversity showcases, content presentation formats, and directed content messaging with an embedded engagement factor to "stop and look" interactivity.

Rishona Studios is working with Dallas-based Creative Image Affair and Seikilos FX Studios (SFX) - a premier art production, image capture and restoration house with proprietary technology and printing techniques. SFX recently made history with the Ricchi Group in digitally recovering a 40' x 6' mural, created by famous artist Jack Lubin (circa 1956), which was uncovered behind a wall at the former Statler-Hilton Hotel. SFX is presenting Ellison's photography and juxtaposition art work to commercial clients, including those in the resort and hotel industry.

Select photographic works can be viewed at the Rishona Studios website ( with links for purchasing photographs and juxtaposition art in multiple sizes and framing options through the Fine Art America website ( For prints on glass or metallic papers, murals and installations, please contact T. (Rishona) Ellison at 720.560.0271 or by email (
