How to Disappear — it’s a constant concern in artist Moki’s work. Moki’s photorealistic paintings find inspiration in comic book themes and natural and human mysteries. Her images are unsettling and charming, strange yet familiar. They feature lonely northern landscapes: isolated Scandinavian and Icelandic terrain, a subarctic frozen lake continent, untouched caves and moss meadows, and mountains sculpted into anatomical shapes by wind and water. Animals and humans emerge and dissolve into their environments. Within the solitude of nature, disappearing seems an obvious act. Moki lives and works in Hamburg, where she studied at the Hamburg Academy of Arts. She also creates animation, comics, performance art, and toys and is active in international art collectives and the Street Art scene. Her art evokes the animation of Hayao Miyazaki, but with a chilling beauty that's pure Moki. Enjoy the haunting alternate world within this monograph.
