Dead End was inspired by the concepts of migration and displacement. Often, immigrants must face a reality on the ground that does not fit the notions they had prior. It can be a rude awakening. Adapting is a difficult and lengthy process.
In the collage, the hand points dismissively to keep moving forward, or perhaps to get out of the way. A child, in profile, is partially concealed. In his way of thinking, there might have been a rainbow of opportunities waiting for him. However, many end up walking down a dead-end path. The sea and sky symbolize distance, and stand for obstacles he’s had to overcome. The sea in particular, with its menacing connotations since many people perish trying to cross it, is turbulent and dark.
