Jeopardy by Gene Dominique

Gene’s image Jeopardy has been selected by Black & White Magazine as a Single Image Winner in the MINDSCAPE/SURREALISM category. The image is featured in issue 142, December 2020.

The magazine published this statement in support of the image.

When creating conceptual silhouettes, simplicity, space and geometry combined with storytelling are essential components for me. Fear and foreboding are the feelings I wanted to convey in Jeopardy. The inevitability of the next moment is palpable, and the end game is clear. How and where it will end are in little dispute. I love creating images like this that tell a story with tension, action and drama. Around my studio are myriad sources of inspiration, including woodcuts and antique illustrations. These, and in particular the work of the artist Kara Walker, were the source material for this image.
