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 the 1950s, advertising illustrations readily used the image of the pin-up girl revealing her charms in languid poses. Dominique Mulhem makes the retro cigarette packet an object of Pop culture, as Andy Warhol did with the tomato soup cans.Discover the artist
