How it grew: alcohol ink on Yupo paper
"How it Grew" is an abstract piece of photographic art using alcohol ink on paper. The abstract qualities of the artwork encourage viewers to engage with their imagination and draw connections between the visual elements presented.
One interpretation of the image could evoke the sense of an embryonic being connected by an umbilical cord to the soil. This interpretation suggests a profound link between creation and creativity, symbolising the nurturing connection between the birth of new life and the fertile ground from which it springs. The umbilical cord becomes a visual metaphor for the symbiotic relationship between the nascent entity and its origins in the earth.
Alternatively, "How it Grew" might be seen as a representation of embryonic ideas within a brain, grounded by its connection to the soil. The abstract forms could be interpreted as the germination of creative thoughts and the interconnectedness between the mind and the nurturing environment. The soil acts as a foundational element, providing sustenance and support for the growth of imaginative concepts.
The artwork's psychological abstraction allows for a range of interpretations, and viewers may find their own unique narratives within its form. The image is designed to spark contemplation on the processes of growth, creation, and the interconnectedness of life with the earth. The ambiguous nature of the image invites viewers to reflect on its symbolism.
