Artist’s Statement on Beauty

Regardless if the medium is a poem, a dance, or a photograph, the intention is the same; to capture the beauty of what may otherwise be lost. It’s attempting to distill the essence of something so fleeting and preserve it; to give its voice agency by choosing from a variety of containers. It’s about holding a conversation between artist and viewer, and inhabiting that space, a place of beauty.


Ava C. Cipri recently picked up a camera and she can’t put it down. She is a poetry editor for The Deaf Poets Society: An Online Journal of Disability Literature & Art.
