In this self portrait, dark and light patterns on the face of the artist are combined with the stripes on a tiger's head. A photographic print of a tiger has been divided into two halves and placed on black card underneath the hologram so that the eyes are registered directly on top of one another. When viewed frontally they glow with light, along with the cat-like smile.


Medium: reflection hologram and photographic reproduction, collaged together. The artist's name, year and edition number (15/50) are written at bottom of the art work. Photo: M. Benyon ©
