About Mireia

 

Since my youth I have been passionate about art which I found was a balance to my interests in more pragmatic subjects such as maths and science. This very

much reflects my personality which also explains my profession as an Architect; a profession that is both regimented and boundless. Art gives me the control to break rules and paint by instinct. 

 

Painting is my chosen medium, but I am equally fascinated by sculpture and find inspiration in works by Rodin and Michelangelo. I especially admire the manner in which Rodin seemingly left some of his pieces unfinished or rough around the edges to better express movement and life. This is a style I also enjoy in paintings, best exemplified by Turner, an artist whose use of light and tone I feel has greatly affected me in my personal and artistic capacity.

Artist Statement

I predominantly paint abstract art as I feel the medium is open to more viewer interpretation; every time an abstract painting is viewed something different is seen, the spectator can think of something new.

 

When not completing commissions, my practise concentrates on exploring different textures and surfaces, recreating abstract landscapes. 

Recently, I have been developing my ‘Earth Series’. I have been experimenting with the use of textures by applying mixed media to canvas and painting on top. This assists to accentuate the mood of the painting, and represents how time and the elements erode features of the landscape around us.
