The technique of lenticular holography used by Dominique Mulhem allows our eye to perceive very clearly the effects of three-dimensional planes. The proof is in the behaviour of visitors to the gallery who try to gauge the thickness of the work, as if it were a box, containing objects and scenery positioned one behind the other. Sometimes the children, deceived by the optical illusion, also reach out with their hands and try to grasp the elements represented in the foreground.
In this composition, Mulhem takes up a strong symbol of Pop culture, the tomato sauce pots dear to Andy Warhol. However, one sometimes wonders if it is not red paint, which would encourage a little reflection on the food industry, which was born in the glory years of Pop Art.
The double frame, with a rod covered with a smoked mirror lacquer, contributes to sublimate this very beautiful piece.Discover the artist
