DENIS PETERSON SAID THAT PHOTOREALISM PAINTING HAS ITS ROOTS IN NEW REALISM, A MOVEMENT BEGUN BY PHOTOREALIST PAINTERS (A.K.A. PHOTOREALISTS) RALPH GOINGS, AUDREY FLACK, CHUCK CLOSE
AND OTHERS. NEW REALISM (LATER COINED PHOTOREALISM BY LOUIS K. MEISEL) WAS AN OUTGROWTH OF POP ART WHICH SYMBOLIZED A HYPERREAL OR HYPERREALIST APPROACH
TO REALITY REGARDING COMMERCIALIZATION, SYMBOLIZATION,AND REPRODUCTION. HYPERREALISM IS A RECOGNIZED SUBSET OF PHOTOREALIST PAINTING AND A DEFINITIVE STYLE.

"I believe, and I care. Look at this. It is important."
