Miriam Aroeste

Studio 221

The far-reaching creative experiences of abstract artist Miriam Aroeste floods her work with a vibrance and life that jumps from her canvas as much as the vivid colours. Her curiosity and open explorations fill you with a sense of adventurous discovery, across layers of her personality as well as paint.

Bounding with energy, these lively pieces all tell their own story, and at the same time feel part of a bigger narrative. That comes from her deliberately inclusive and open style that welcomes anyone to become a part of her work and process.

Her vivacious works stand as mirrors to your emotions, and allow an emotive interaction that strikes instant connectivity between the viewer and the work. It stirs a reaction to the bold and unabashed power, transcending the manifestation of verve through colour and shape. You get an immense sense of the artist’s personal discovery and creative journey thanks to the tactile qualities of her creations. “I love to feel,” she urges, rubbing her fingertips together as if she can hold her style between them. “I love texture, and to touch.” There lies amongst the many levels and grains an almost comforting, nurturing feeling of self-exploration, adding depth to the many coats of meaning that make up her work.
