A Cuttley Festivus by Elizabeth Solich

ARTIST NOTES: A Cuttley Festivus (2022) By Elizabeth Solich, oil on canvas, recycled materials. Unlike their squid and octopus cousins, baby cuttlefish are already highly developed and independent straight from hatching. Like their parents, they will leave the breeding grounds, although they return a year or so later to the same stage on which they were born to decorate the big christmas tree together. Cuttlefish know that tinsel and glitter can end up in the sea, potentially harming their brothers and sisters. Microplastics, which include beads, fibres and fragments like glitter, are a globally significant environmental pollutant.

Adelaide based artist and photographer, Elizabeth Solich, has been honing her skills in underwater photography for the past seven years. Originally an architecture student, Elizabeth blended her photography skills and underwater observations of the fauna and flora with her drawing and painting experience, bringing about a perfect marriage of her two passions. Elizabeth's evolution into underwater photography allowed her to introduce another element to this union and extend the range of her talent even further. Her observations of marine fauna and flora allows Elizabeth to challenge boundaries, capturing the underwater world utilizing environmentally aware story telling in the exploration of movement and composition.  

Elizabeth shares her passion for everything underwater with the world. Through her artwork she expresses her never ending admiration for the weird and wonderful underwater creations of nature. Her works have been displayed at various exhibitions in Australia and overseas.
