Miriam Smithers Art
I am a contemporary Oil Painter. I take inspiration for my work from looking at the human form and how we as people interact with each other. How we see people visually, their posture, their emotion. The tangle of human relationships in everyday life, their personal space, the spaces between ,depictions of Urban life while the World goes on as it must. I have established myself as a Contemporary Figurative Artist.A fascination with both the human form and and the Architecture of Urban Living play a huge role in my work. The backgrounds are muted and tonal, creating mood and atmosphere with shocks of bold colour bringing the humans to life. I have exhibited my work in a number of Galleries and Venues throughout Ireland and England and many of my timeless Paintings are part of Collections in the United States, Great Britain and Australia ..
