Although the works appear to be exact replicas of photographic images, Dzimirsky's aim is "representational and lyrical," according to his artist statement, which explains his particular language as "marks like words and textured areas like paragraphs." According to his website, Dzimirsky starts his drawing process with a photograph, but once he gets the proportions down he relies heavily on improvisation and imagination.
