Liza Read uses holograms, 3D laser photographs, and mixed media to create engaging artworks that investigate our cultural relationship with Science.
“Embedded in frames, boxes, paper, books, my artworks are holograms in disguise. They seem familiar, approachable objects. 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 sometimes beg the question. I love to see the expressions of pure joy and wonder that happen when people are allowed to let themselves be amazed.”
‘To Hell and Back’ is Read’s latest fine art series, is a thought provoking contemporary reference to the Circles of Hell in Dante's Inferno. These tactile pieces exhibited alongside a collection of silkscreen prints celebrating unsung female scientists at Gallery 286, London during November 2017.
