Desirée spent the month of March (2018) in the state of California, exhibiting artworks in two international art fairs (in La Quinta and in Downtown Los Angeles).
During this time she also focused on the creation of unique compositions depicting both the Coachella Valley and LA region.
The project was treated as a self-guided artist residency, with ambitions to foster creative exploration of these regions while exhibiting her artwork on international platforms to increase exposure of her environmental concepts. The final days of this project were spent in the museums and galleries of Los Angeles, indulging in some of the most impressive contemporary art collections in the world.
The artworks below are the product of this residency.
