Using traditional folk iconography and remixing it for the 21st century, Melbourne-based painter, Miranda Skoczek’s works invite the viewer to witness the birth of new meanings and relationships, encouraging us to “imagine how fantastical spaces materialize,” as we engage with each piece.
Tears of Joy, 2012 // mixed media on arches, paper, perspex frame (49 x 36cm)
Skoczek’s confident use of colour blends seamlessly with totem animals, melding imagery of both real and fictional animals. The current body of work features smaller works on paper that are Perspex framed; and larger, equally as striking oil and acrylic, and enamel paintings on canvas.
