The Purposeful Mayonnaise

Melissa Gile 

My name is Melissa Gile, and I am a self-taught acrylic artist and expat based out of Hamburg, Germany. I started drawing at the age of two and largely think of visual expression as my first language, using my work as a means to express the connections I feel as I navigate this earth. My current work is inspired by the concept of "oneness" – in which I explore, befriend and find sanctuary in the interwoven relationship between feminine spirits, bodies and nature.

no, the days are not blee/nding into each other
the green arrived on time on those trees’ buds
                of wannabe and willbe leaves
we saw that solitary young goose
                looking for another
                                 this past Saturday
                                 then the next day
                the sky was so blue
it shimmered
the quiet squirrel discovered a comfortable branch
               it’s not that the branch was too covered
               but I know when it will be
               and for how long
I bribed the sparrows with breadcrumbs
                               two Mondays ago
              they claimed it was the wind that took them
                              in the breadcrumb heist of April

L.I. Leulescu

Born in Romania, where a poet once told me I should write. I stopped writing and started again in Canada two decades later, when Time began to accelerate.

Henni Pfeiffer 

Medium: Gouache on Paper
Size: 21 x 31 cm
Name: Self-Care Series (Soft Skin, Feel Good, Smells Good)

My intention for these paintings is multifaceted. Our life has been very much reduced to our "home." And I have experienced how quickly you can forget yourself if you only pay attention to what is happening in the world. The bright colors of the gouache combined with ordinary everyday objects helped me to remember that you have to put yourself first if you want to serve others. That's why I named it simply "self-care series."
And to be honest, it was much fun to create these colorful paintings.
In May I plan to have an exclusive presale for these paintings.  

Henni Pfeiffer was born in Romania. She moved with her family to Germany, when she was a child. She attended a business school and did a commercial apprenticeship. She is a self-taught artist and a CFO. Her love for art and paintings has accompanied her all her life. Creative members of her family had a great influence on her development and encouraged her.
She currently loves to explore gouache as a medium which helps her to transfer the hidden beauty in simple things to the outside.
She intends to be a full-time artist.
