CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
A digital collage presents a cigarette advertisement where a naked woman sits on a pack of cigarettes, while leaning on another pack and looking directly at the viewer. A series of vertical strips were cut from the original ad and paste at slightly different positions. The resulted image creates a sort of trompe-l'oeil.
