Ink and water photography has never been so vibrant as that seen in the 'Aqueous Fluoreau' series. Even its predecessor, Aqueous, cannot touch the presence of its neon chromatic vibrancy. Comprised of 14 new underwater photographs, each image is as different as the next, despite the similar colors used throughout.

Created by photographer Mark Mawson, the Aqueous Fluoreau series has a sculptural aesthetic that gives it a tangible presence. From mushroom clouds to squid-like shapes, the forms created are ever changing and full of life. Relying purely on creation and imagination, the Aqueous Fluoreau series shows a range of possibility when it comes not only to photography, but to abstract art as well. Like Rorschach inkblots, this series also relies on interpretation.
