The story behind INTERFET

Bert Ernie has created a deliberate body of photorealism that doesn’t easily fall into the trap of being overly reliant on visual tricks to provide the viewer with something worth looking at. He believes that photorealist art should also be about ideas, as well as being easily understandable.
