About The Artwork

I have always found the inkblots of the psychological test known as the Rorschach test to be beautiful and alluring. During a Rorschach test, subjects perceptions of inkblots are recorded, analyzed, and used to examine a person's personality characteristics and emotional functioning. I wanted to create this effect with underwater imagery because of the inherent doubling effect that happens with the reflection. When I created this image as a mirrored "inkblot", I immediately saw a head of a grasshopper starring straight towards me. That lead me down a path of researching the meanings of grasshoppers. Grasshoppers can only jump forward….not backward, or sideways. When the grasshopper appears to us we are being asked to take a leap of faith and jump forward into a specific area of life without fear. Usually that specific area is one that we have avoided and is often connected to change on a larger scale. The image is printed on archival Canson Platine paper. Trimmed with a minimum of a 1 inch border for handling. This print is signed and numbered on the back of the print. Each print is accompanied by a signed and numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Long Beach-based photographer, Mallory Morrison, has been honing her skills in underwater photography for the past several years and continues to experiment with new processes and concepts. Originally a dance photographer, Mallory blended her photography skills with her twenty-four years of dance experience, bringing about a perfect marriage of her two passions. Mallory’s evolution into underwater photography allowed her to introduce another element to this union and extend the range of her talent even further. Her use of dancers in an underwater environment allows Mallory to challenge the boundaries of people photography - utilizing weightlessness to tell stories which explore the depths of movement and composition.
