“Sink” is based around the artist’s personal experience of growing up living with an alcoholic parent. Using photography Andrew explores the emotional effects of this experience.
Wrapping the sheet around his own body in physically constricting ways demonstrates the emotional and mental abuse Andrew went though as well as the struggle to overcome the harmful effects. The artist physically illustrates this struggle by fighting with the sheet as it pulls at, strangles and contorts his body. With the sheet pulled taut the wine stains become bruises upon his body, a way to visualize the emotional pain he has been through.
