Time to run, time to dance: alcohol ink on Yupo paper

Time to Run, Time to Dance is a conceptual piece of photographic art that uses alcohol ink on paper to create a psychological and abstract exploration of movement, emotion, and ambiguity. The title suggests contrasting themes of urgency and celebration.

The composition suggests the shape of a figure who appears to be either dancing in exuberance or running with a sense of urgency. The ambiguity of the figure's intent leaves the viewer in a state of uncertainty, prompting contemplation on the dual nature of the depicted actions.

The juxtaposition of the two actions implies a complex relationship between joy and escape. It suggests that dancing, typically associated with joy and celebration, can also serve as a temporary escape from trouble, a momentary reprieve from the challenges of life.

Another interpretation might revolve around the idea of flight from danger, questioning the role of dancing and merriment in the context of escape from unwelcome and threatening circumstances. The figure's movement could be seen as a response to external pressures, where the act of dancing becomes a form of resistance or defiance against adversity.
