the curation of over forty-two original works of art that invited viewers into the exploration of the unknown

TO STIMULATE CURIOSITY, WONDER, AWE & FASCINATION TOWARDS WHAT WE DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO; TO WHAT MAY LIE BEYOND THIS REALM, WHERE EVERYTHING IS PHYSICAL, WHERE EVERYTHING IS EXPERIENCED THROUGH MATTER. IT IS THE ATTEMPT OF DEVELOPING A SENSE BEYONG THE 5TH; THE INTROSPECTIVE STUDY OF TUNING IN WITH WHAT WE CANNOT SEE OR COMPREHEND

"UNCERTAINTY REALMS, THE ART OF THE UNKNOWN", TELLS THE STORY OF DESIREE'S EXPERIENCES WITH DIVINATION AND SPIRITUAL ASCENSION PRACTICES.

FUELED BY HER NEVER-ENDING FASCINATION TOWARDS OCCULT SCIENCES AND THE UNKNOWN, DESIREE BRINGS A COLLECTION THAT COMBINES THE NATURAL HEALING PROPERTIES OF STONES TIED TO FEMININE DIVINITY, SHADOW WORK, THE WHAT IF'S OF THE AFTERLIFE AND THE UNKNOWN VIEWED THROUGH A LENS FULL OF HOPE AND TRANSCENDETALISM. 

A MAIN COMPONENT IN HER WORK ARE HER OWN EXPERIENCES WITH 'SHADOW PERSONALITIES' WHICH SHE EMBODIES THROUGH FEMALE PORTRAITURE AS HER WAY OF STUDYING, UNDERSTANDING, AND VISUALLY REPRESENTING THOSE 'NEGATIVE' PARTS OF OURSELVES WE HIDE FROM THE WORLD, AND OFTEN TIMES, EVEN SUBCONSCIOUSLY FROM OURSELVES. HER SERIES SEEKS TO TRANSCEND THE DARKER ASPECTS OF OURSELVES BY FIRST CREATING A COEXISTENCE BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR SHADOW FUELED BY COMPASSION, EMPATHY, AND ACCEPTANCE.
