Artist statement:
Mobula Rays are otherworldly creatures that gracefully glide through the water and fly through the air. For this piece, I wanted to blur the lines between the sea and the sky and create an in between dream world for the rays to exist in. There is something beautiful about how when they travel in groups they take on a larger abstract form, morphing to create a single flowing entity. I chose a monochromatic palette for this piece to represent their elusive nature but also to call attention to their fragility. When something fits so well into its environment that it is hard to notice, it becomes even more difficult to notice once it is gone. The rainbow foil paper was chosen to act as a reminder that while they are hard to see they are very much there and when the light catches right the Mobula rays shimmer in unison speaking towards the beauty and wonder of the ocean world below.
