From a limited edition of 10 archival photographs. Signed and numbered by artist A K Nicholas. A plunging figure dominates this image, trailing bubbles from the brightness above, gracefully descending to the inevitable world of darkness below her. Her immersion is rendered in grainy tones of amber and steely blue-gray. As life sustaining oxygen escapes from her lungs, tiny bubbles fade into the expanse like the twinkling of stars in an underwater galaxy. One arm extends into a corner, the other connected to the world above the surface. Her jet-black hair floats behind her, framing her head.

A K Nicholas was born in the United States and raised in the Middle East. Always at ease with visual expression, as a second generation artist, childhood included exposure to galleries and museums in dozens of countries. Although formally trained in painting and drawing, he chose photography as best suited to convey his ideas. "I feel the most successful images leave the viewer either unsure or unconcerned as to the precise process of production."
