Valkyriekerry Kelly – Eight Photographs
Artist’s Statement on Beauty
To dive beneath the waves of clear waters, echoing the turquoise sky in the path of light. To see beneath the waves the glowing masses of shimmering colour as fish go about their daily business between the emerald sheaths of sea flora. To swim across the coral alive with crimson, spiked creatures and glare into the natural hidden paradise beneath the glassy surface. This is beauty in its purest form.
