Make a Connection: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

Make a Connection is a conceptual photographic artwork made with alcohol ink on paper. The image explores the ideas of connection and connectivity, using visuals that are both ambiguous and psychological.

Portrayed in dark grey on the right-hand side of the image there appears to be a figure that is separate yet connected to the rest of the image through a white umbilical cord.

On the left-hand side, there is an amorphous collection of interconnected entities their forms and boundaries intentionally obscured.

Does the umbilical cord suggest a lifeline, indicating that the connection is not just superficial but vital and nurturing?

The image might represent the processes of lateral thinking and free expression. The interconnected entities on the left representing the vast network of ideas and possibilities that become accessible when creative freedom is fully realised. The umbilical cord becomes a conduit for the exchange of these ideas, a docking point with the more obscure and tangential sources of inspiration.

- lens based / conceptual photographic art project using alcohol inks and post processing to 'sculpt' abstract, psychological imagery.
