Each image in the series by the London-based Spanish artist shows an Old Master painting from The Prado Museum, The Louvre or the National Gallery in London scanned under X-ray or ultraviolet light.

The blend of painterly representation and mechanical abstraction gives the composition of each photograph a strange, uncanny feel. Each work is reproduced to scale. This photograph is 49757 (St Gregory The Great), which is available at the exhibition for £5000.
