Last fall, digital photographer Meir Martin hopped into his car with a friend and road-tripped to the Everglades, packing food, his Nikon SLR and enough battery power to snap 3,000 pictures of native birds during mating season.

Trekking to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, Blue Cypress Lake near Vero Beach and Dinner Island Ranch near Clewiston, the Israeli-born artist spent one day amid the freshwater prairies and forested Rocklands, training his camera on wood storks, great egrets and roseate spoonbills. After he finished, Martin used computer software to mount some of his images into a single painting, depicting avian life in a seamless collage of digital photography.

"Surreal Nature," the result, measures 40 feet long and weighs north of 500 pounds. Martin thinks it's a serious contender for next year's Guinness Book of World Records.

"It is definitely the widest painting of the Everglades ever made," the Pompano Beach resident claims. "I'm snapping pictures like crazy – dead trees, sawgrass ponds, spoonbills, sandhill cranes – every one of these birds is one image, composited together. Taking one picture of the sky does nothing for me, because I wanted to describe every bird, every sunset, all the beauty of nature, 360 degrees around me. So I compress everything."

The creation is one of nearly four dozen works on display for "Surreal Everglades," his solo exhibition opening Wednesday and running through Sept. 26 inside Gallery Six at the Broward County Main Library. Since 2008, Martin has been calling such images "digital paintings," each created by blending several – and sometimes thousands – of individual stills, like puzzle pieces, into oversize nature portraits on canvas.
