Lungs: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

Lungs is a conceptual photographic artwork made using alcohol ink on paper. The central focus of the image is the outline of a figure enveloped in a wispy blue mist or smoke. The figure appears to have lungs, coloured in red.

The ambiguity of the image may suggest the red lungs symbolise the impact of air pollution on human health. The blue mist surrounding the figure could represent pollutants in the air, emphasising the need for clean and breathable environments.

Alternatively, the work may be interpreted metaphorically, representing the "oxygen of creativity." In this context, the red lungs could signify the life force of creative ideas, while the blue mist represents the supportive and conducive environment necessary for creative progress.

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