The subject of the work, Tania, is photographically reproduced on canvas by the superscan laser technique which involves computer-controlled airbrush guns spraying acrylic-based pigment inks. Tania is shown in black stockings and underwear, appearing to perform a strip-tease for the camera. The figure is surrounded by impasto glitter paint pipped, brushed and spread across the canvas. The entire environment surrounding each figure has been articulated and decorated with glitter, gel, and reflective fragments of plastic and found objects.
