The Godlike Mythological and Geometric Paintings of Miriam Escofet
My ‘arrival’ at painting has been a slightly unusual one, in the sense that I purposely set out to study a skills based 3D Design course, where I specialized in ceramics. My rationale for this being that I have always loved the ‘making process’ and I am very interested in the three dimensional and textural quality of objects and spaces. I worked in clay for some years after leaving Art College, whilst starting to get commissions for paintings (mainly watercolours at the time). The painting evolved from this and eventually took up all my time. Drawing and making are still at the core of the work, but painting allows me to invent other spaces and ideas with no physical constraints.
John Brosio is a painter based out of sunny Pasadena, California, USA. Brosio’s work has a very subtle humorous element that caught my attention, and I definitely appreciate his wit in combination with this awesome painting abilities. What the hell do you do when a giant octopus is just chilling on top of your house?
