What is real? What is fantasy? Christopher Sheils explores this duality in Time is an Illusion, exploiting limitations of visual perception by combining unrelated realities in his images. The exhibition is based on studies into cognitive and visual perception and delusion, and the brain’s response to such stimuli. The result is an immersive work that challenges the brain to either switch between realities or to merge them into a sensible delusion, provoking viewers to contemplate humankind’s capacity to believe when there is no truth, just characteristics of a logical consistency.
Christopher Sheils works as a psychiatric nurse and has developed an interest in visual and cognitive perception. With 25 years of award-winning commercial experience, he began exhibiting his work in 2016 and is now a member of the Los Angeles Centre of Photography and the Soho Photo Group in New York.
