Elena Kalis











I grew up with a pool in the backyard and snorkeling on vacations with my father. Fear of anything involving water was never an option. The work of Bahamian artist Elena Kalis is fiercely reminiscent of my childhood, I can almost hear the peace and silence that only comes from being totally immersed. Elena's work is bizarre in a languid and beautiful manner. Though it touches me on a personal level, (seeing how I have hosted numerous underwater tea parties myself) the light and color seems that it would have universal appeal.
