STATEMENT

Miri’s style is divided into abstracts and figurative-abstract. Miri is an intuitive abstract painter. Her process starts with random strokes and as she does it she gets inspired on how to proceed next. At first, the shapes seem random, but layer by layer they start to connect and make sense. This is the most challenging and satisfying step because the artist gets to experience and see how the chaos starts to get form and meaning. In the end, the artist looks at the painting and the title of the painting comes to her mind. The artist uses brushes, spatulas, and sponges to create textures and shapes, she loves to combine all the tools as each one allows to create a different shape. Miri is inspired by the nature’s colors and shapes, it can be anything she sees or dreams of. When Miri works on a figurative painting, it is usually based on a photo. She draws the figure on a Bristol board and transfers it into the canvas, which was already primed with a first layer, and then she starts painting the figure. Towards the end, Miri starts to incorporate abstract elements into the painting. This part is the most satisfying step because she gets to let my imagination go again. Sometimes the abstract parts are minimal, and sometimes they are more pronounced, depending on the mood she is and the specific piece she is working on. The colors and shapes of things inspire the artist, it can be anything she sees or dreams. She is also inspired by people’s facial gestures, and also by her dreams
