“I have a deep affinity with the ocean and have been a keen scuba diver for over 10 years. With over one hundred dives behind me I decided to paint the threatened reefs of the world and bring focus to the magical life beneath the surface. I’m really enjoying focusing on painting the inspiring energetic colour, amorphous shapes and fluid lines of the coral underwater, of the light through the ocean, and the dynamic life of healthy coral. The ocean currents create constant ebb and flow, the swirling fish, the moving coral tentacles in the ocean currents, sea snakes passing, the shimmering movement of sea life. These works on paper seek to convey the vibrant colour, mood and uplifting spirit of the reef and of how I feel when I’m diving. I hope we keep our amazing Australian reefs safe and protected and do all we can do to allow them to flourish.” ~ Candyss
