Murder Weapon: alcohol ink on Yupo paper
The Murder Weapon is a conceptual photographic artwork made using alcohol ink on paper. The limited colour palette, consisting of grey, black, and blood red, sets an ominous tone.
At the heart of the composition lies a blunt object, in shades of grey and black, tainted at points in blood red. The suggestion of blood implies a gruesome act has occurred. Specific details are withheld concealing the identity of both the victim and the perpetrator. All we seem to have in the mystery is the object used to inflict harm.
When curiosity overrides empathy there is good reason for a contemplation of the darker aspects of human nature. What is the nature of violence, morality, and the human psyche that can disconnect us from empathising with the victim?
