a note from the artist, saara--
There are 2 main reasons they inspired me: the district of our hometown they live in. the name of which translates to Overriver - there is lots of beautiful but decadent architecture, a vast cemetery where a lot of artists, writers and scholars are buried, plus backyards straight out of strange short stories of magical realism; and my friends' sweet-sweet company, full of laughter, ponderings on the world and absurdities of everyday life. I hope that translates on the pictures!
