Artist's Description

Digital composite, 2010
Part of the Dogma series.
© Graeme Hindmarsh, 2010

Icarus stands on the precipice and looks skyward. He is at the tipping point – the point of no return. I wanted to try to capture that endorphin filled ecstatic moment, that spit second, as the prospect of either soaring or falling to his death becomes a reality and is no longer his choice, he cannot go back now.

This classical tale has many layers of meaning. Hopefully, this representation adds another.
