Kemi embodies the natural forms of an iceberg, gazing upon the arctic landscapes. The minimalistic forms of Kemi were imagined to beautifully feature one of the Painting Series created by the Bali-based artist Ewa Matyja, a series inspired by the roughness of the deep ocean and its darkness softened when reaching the shore. Kemi creates a sense of calmness, in the endless search for peace, and seeks refuge in its magical aura.

THE STORY BEHIND
Art is born of the observation and investigation of nature.
Art is contemplation, it is the pleasure of the mind searching into nature, there divines the spirit of which nature herself is animated.
