4me4you features the artist Miriam Vlaming - “transformation”.
Miriam Vlaming always keeps the whole picture in mind, her images constantly evoke landscape, enlivened with hints at nature and human figures in scenarios that prove highly fragile, but right to the point of dissolution and abstraction.
The images and concepts in Miriam Vlaming’s art serve to enlighten and confuse at the same time. Truly striking: With Miriam Vlaming, the technique she applies to her paintings is an analogue counterpart to their content.
The application of layers of egg tempera allows lower layers to gleam through in places, and many areas are dissolved with turpentine and wiped off, thinned paint is made to run off at angles and islands of paint offer glimpses into the deeper layers. All this prevents her images from being read clearly. Sometimes, her fondness for photographic records of her own rejected former artworks allows them to serve as backgrounds for a new start; they’ll be covered over, but not entirely hidden.
