Christy’s latest series is entitled ‘ÉLAN‘ – French for vigour, spirit, and an enthusiasm typically revealed by assurance or brilliance of performance. It is a fitting title for her new body of work, another triumph of typically un-manipulated aquatic photographs. The series consists of 24 pieces in total and each will be sold as a number of very limited editions in varying sizes. Each piece has been heavily and patently influenced by the circus and, specifically, performances associated with Paris, such as the Moulin Rouge.

“I was inspired by Paris, the performances of the Moulin Rouge, the old circuses, wild abandonment and that feeling of letting go that explodes out of you like you’re drunk with love,” says Christy of her new work. “I imagined living in Paris during the1920s as a performer, with no possessions except for your talent and art, and how free, yet desperate, that would be.”

Shot in Las Vegas and set to be unveiled in London, this Hawaiian-based artist’s latest exhibition is not to be missed. Already considered a cult artist by a growing legion of fans all over the world, ÉLAN is surely another step in Christy’s inevitable rise to truly iconic status.

Catch her while you still can.
