‘To Hell and Back’ is Read’s latest fine art series, a thought provoking contemporary reference to the Circles of Hell in Dante’s Inferno. These tactile holograms will exhibit at Gallery 286, London in November 7- 30, 2017.
Embedded in frames, boxes, paper, books, these are holograms in disguise. Pieces that tempt you to come in for closer inspection, to examine, explore and discover the hologram almost as an element of surprise. I feel my artworks should provoke deep thoughts, but never be intimidating. They might provide an answer, or beg the question. I love to see the expressions of pure joy when people are allowed to let themselves be amazed.
