Playing within the construct of representational painting, Holographic Studies works with the idea of illusions. As representations are reflections of the world, representational paintings are never what they claim to be. This series furthers the idea of representational painting as an illusion. The holographic print is a rendition of a hologram on a 2D surface, it becomes a representation of an illusion. A representational painting of a holographic print is then a painting about the illusion of representation.
