Tell me what you see: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

Tell Me What You See is an enigmatic and surreal conceptual photographic artwork created with alcohol ink on paper. This piece is designed to be a meditative psychological device, prompting viewers to engage in a reflective process as they explore the hidden forms within the composition.

The surreal nature of the image allows for various interpretations, a Rorschach test encouraging viewers to project their thoughts, emotions, and experiences onto its forms.

There is an overarching question as to whether the picture reveals itself to the viewer or if it is the viewer that determines what is revealed. The viewer's role in the creative process is crucial—they become co-creators, actively contributing to the meaning-making of the artwork.

The relationship between the picture and its interpretation by the viewer is symbiotic. The image serves as a catalyst for introspection, prompting the viewer to delve into their subconscious and extract personal meanings.
Simultaneously, the viewer's unique experiences and mindset influence the interpretation, adding layers of complexity to the overall visual experience.

The picture somewhat blurs the boundaries between artist and viewer, challenging the bland notions of a one-sided artistic narrative.

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