Ana Maria Nicholson is a pioneering holographic artist specializing in pulse portraits and multimedia works. Her work is centered mostly around the human figure: its beauty, its complexity, and its ability to express in gesture and movement the hidden realities that lie at the core of the human spirit. I have an original holographic portrait she created for Keith Haring in the 80s looking over my studio today. It’s hauntingly true to life and it’s almost as if you can feel Keith’s presence every time you look at it.
