Playing within 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 paper, being a directly reflective material becomes a literal manifestation of the illusion. To paint the reflective holographic material is to paint the illusion of representation.
