In Focus: the threatening beauty in Anna-K’s clay reefs

Anna K, Kingston based sculptor and ceramist who is actively celebrating the marine world’s beauty, in particular reefs, paying very close attention to their ecosystems, ornate shapes and rapidly changing landscapes. Anna K wants us to pay attention not only to their captivating beauty but also their fragility and the impact we have on their livelihood.

From the intricately embellished patchwork of the corals themselves to the countless multicolored creatures that reside in the crevices of the reefs, every cubic inch of a prosperous coral habitat appears to be thriving and teeming with complexity. Over the years Anna has gained admiration and appreciation for these diverse and beautiful marine habitats that consist of such mesmerizing details that still contributes to not only the oceans’ creatures but also to man.

Large areas once covered with vast piles of delicate branching stag-horn coral are now piles of eroding rubble, absent are the multitude of fishes and invertebrates that once dwelled in the crevices of the reefs. Even more disturbing and alarming is the fact that persons are unaware of the wondrous treasure that has been lost. Our lack of connection to this under ocean world has led to a sense of apathy regarding its decline, but through art, is it possible to create a connection that will enact a positive change?
