MIAMI GEISHAS

I created the Miami Geisha Series to tell a visual story specifically for the 2019 Art Miami event held at The Confidante Hotel for ART BASEL MIAMI.

 

This story transports 18th/19th Century Japanese Geisha's to Modern-day Miami, FL. The series examines the clash of these two cultures; cultures of a different era. Reminiscent to the mass migration of the Cuban people into South Florida.

All of which begs to question, do we assimilate? Do we adopt the norms of the day? And how do we preserve our heritage while accepting and being accepted?
