Miriam Traher

As an emerging self-taught artist, Miriam jumps into her art with sheer inquisitiveness and courage, embracing passion and authenticity throughout her work process.

I like to approach my work with a sense of exploration, constantly adding and subtracting, asking what ifs and what would happen now, until everything has been said and the canvas is quiet. I want to share these feelings for the viewer to discover and enjoy for themselves.”

Often combining mark-making with found materials (dress patterns, newspapers) and personal documents (journal entries, to-do lists to name a few), Miriam’s paintings display a unique surface rich in visual texture and full of curiosities. Her process involves layering, covering, ripping and collaging onto the surface, only to then go over select areas with more paint and paper, leaving hints of their stories left to be seen.

The story of where we come from, the hints and shouts of our past connected to today, sprinkled with dreams and ideas about tomorrow. I can’t paint about today, my experience and feeling without parts of my past and future dreams being woven throughout. I am constantly working to contrast space and form and is continually drawn to line and colour and the struggle to find the balance, the space and stories waiting to be told.”
