The Sea of Ending Pt. 1

Daniel Ehrenworth

In the first part of the Sea of Ending trilogy, Toronto artist Daniel Ehrenworth presents a suite of inkjet prints that depict an imagining of the passage from life to death. Unlike conventional representations of dying, especially the clean, simplistic, and somewhat clinical “light at the end of a tunnel,” The Sea of Ending Pt. 1 depicts the beginning of an organic and frightening journey through an illusory wilderness. Aesthetically influenced by Impressionism, charcoal drawing and cinema, this series employs a unique combination of in-camera and darkroom technique mixed with digital and inkjet technology.
