The Ambiguity of Beauty

Continuing the themes of existence and association, identity and belonging The Ambiguity of Beauty series focuses on sea creatures she has encountered, predominantly the Jellyfish.

These sensitive and fragile organisms fascinate her not only for their delicate beauty and grace but also their fierceness and often deadly poison. There is a theory that seeing many of them is sign that the ecosystem is out of balance yet in ancient shamanic cultures they were a symbol of equilibrium, trust and intuition. Although they can move, they are mostly propelled by the flow of the water and it is impossible for them to swim against a current hence no surprise they are considered as symbols of acceptance by many island cultures.
