Artwork of the Day: Water, Miriam Hinds
Today’s Artwork of the Day is an aluminum/bronze/wood sculpture titled “Water” by Artexpo New York 2012 exhibitor Miriam Hinds.
Miriam’s artwork explores surfaces, lights and shadows with contemporary elegance. She favors complex, abstract forms, which she infuses with energy and intrigue.
Born In São Paulo, Brazil, Miriam obtained a degree in Advertising and Marketing at Escola Superior de Propaganda e Marketing. Even as she studied marketing, however, her deep passion for artwork was always present. In 1980, she embarked upon her career in artwork in earnest at the Millenarian Art Ceramic. She worked and studied with different artists, developing a variety of techniques in ceramics: molding, raku, glazes,etc.
After some time, “the need of experimenting with different materials” led her to explore the mediums of bronze, iron, aluminum, resin and wood. Today, these are the materials she works with, predominently.
Miriam has participated in many exhibitions throughout Brazil, Chile, New York City, Berlin, Paris, Washington DC, and other locations. We look forward to hosting her at Artexpo New York 2012, slated for March 22-25 at Pier 92 on the Hudson River. See you there, Miriam!
