The sky as the source of light is the subject of Miriam’s paintings and graphite works. In the tradition of Constable, the painter finds emotions and their vicissitudes mirrored in cloud formations and heightened in the shafts of sunlight that pass through the gaps in the clouds.
An immersive installation exhibited as part of the Green Sky Festival.
The installation consists of a painted cloudscape, incorporating sound and light to create an atmospheric space large enough for visitors to enter.
