Meraki: (n.) the soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work.
‘demoiselles Meraki’ is an ode to women. It is an artistic exploration of special cities, stressing what makes them unique. It’s a 'retrouvaille' to and from places in which I’ve felt alive- rediscovered, redefined. It’s a little bit of Matisse’s flattening, Klimt’s coloring, Schiele’s ‘awkward beauty’ and Kokoschka’s simplicity. My 'demoiselles' honor the moments, the people and the feelings experienced at school, while studying abroad, and the personal growth from the years past.
