Visions of Dragons: alcohol ink on photographic paper
Visions of Dragons is a conceptual surrealist photographic artwork that uses alcohol ink on paper. The colour palette of pink, red, grey, and light yellow adds to the multi-layered composition.
The image is ambiguous but appears to contain what could be the outline of a dragon’s head. One interpretation of the picture could be the archetypal hero's journey, where the dragon symbolises challenges and obstacles that must be faced.
Alternatively, the artwork might represent the artist's creative struggle. The dragon, in this context, becomes a metaphor for the inner creative force that is both powerful and challenging to control.
