Her website begins with the appearance of a white feather, a twig I'm certain is an insect, a tooth that rots as the cursor hovers, and other interesting articles of nature that open up to parts of the website when clicked. Moki is a German artist shrouded in mystery and nature. Forgoing titles for most of her pieces, she explains her want of viewers to reflect their own personality without a filter or guide. “...more than animistic, it’s pantheistic. The structures of stones, the colors of their lichens… it’s a feeling of respect and appreciation relating to nature. I think sometimes it’s the longing to be a part of it – forming a unity to overcome the feeling of alienation – just as much it is the amazement of beauty and a desire to understand,” says Moki of her work in a 2009 interview with Erratic Phenomena. Take a look at her series of paintings, so intricately layered onto wood.

I’d decided to put in a rare appearance knowing that the very brand I'd created doesn’t mirror the image of its creator. It’s all a dream. A dream I believe possible. A dream where people are free to be themselves and luxury is a state of mind, not a collection of possessions, where treasures are found at every given turn and heaven on earth is to be found around every corner. The venue, Encore Restaurant and Lounge in Wayne NJ, is a darkly hued establishment with light browns and tans; perfect for me depending on my mood. Cloth, stone and metal structured my immediate surroundings, giving the room an earthy feel. It felt real. I’d come alone, as is my custom if not rarely accompanied by a beautiful girl, close friend, kidnapped family member or business associate. I come from a world where discretion is valor and as usual as possible I stayed to the shadows.
