End of the Beginning: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

The End of the Beginning is a surrealist conceptual photographic artwork made using alcohol ink on paper. The colour palette is of grey, light blue, and light purple.
The image appears to depict a figure with arms outstretched, resembling a crucifixion.

The picture suggests a connection to the end of Christ's life, invoking themes of sacrifice, redemption, and rebirth. Simultaneously, the picture suggests that the end marks the beginning of a new phase.

In the latter context, the figure's outstretched arms may symbolise surrender or acceptance, representing the closure of one chapter and the commencement of another.

The work explores the enigmatic nature of beginnings and endings, encouraging personal reflections on life's cycles and transitions.

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