Momentary Recognition: Visual Art chemigram on photographic paper overpainted with acrylic

Momentary Recognition is a conceptual photographic artwork that uses acrylic painting on chemigrams. The image is a meditative visualisation of sudden epiphany—a momentary recognition of a thing, place, or meaning.

The abstract and surreal nature of the picture captures the essence of a mental state during a moment of recognition. The use of black and white in the colour palette represents a sense of heightened awareness and clarity. Hints of orange suggest the transient nature of epiphany.

The composition does not provide a clear depiction of what is recognised, leaving it open to interpretation. In this sense it seeks to visualise a feeling of recognition and acceptance that revelations are fragmented and interrupted.

- acrylic painting on chemigram, exploring the idea of momentary recognition, something abstract or surreal suddenly and fleetingly conveying meaning through emotional resonance. The subject saying - yes, I know that person. The unconsciousness winks back, you are that person.
