By Inaki Beguiristain hologram artist - 4” x 5” Colour control reflection hologram - 1990
A leading, if not the best, colour control holographic artist working today.
Iñaki’s focus for the first two decades of his work was predominantly representational work, the idea being not to just faithfully replicate features of an object but to enhance its characteristics, giving the object a new lease of life. From a technical point of view this is about as challenging as it gets. It could be argued that if this aspect has been mastered then control of the medium is finally at least a possibility.
Iñaki now works more in the abstract, seeing holography simply as a tool to control light. Some of his more recent work combines holography with other photonic sources to give an end result that, for him, is the essence of pure light and its interaction with space.

“ To me holography is a never ending learning process, full of contradictions. It is extremely precise, and yet intuition and ambiguity play a big part. Holography as a means to an end follows the theory to the letter and yet can be wildly empirical in its nature. In reality I don’t think it can be neatly categorised. It combines art, scientific imaging and craft – in equal proportions. The end result, which is essentially the subtle control and capture of light and space, could justifiably be considered as the work of an artist, and an artisan.” Inaki Beguiristain
