Description:The process of an abstract painting is always an adventured journey. I choose a few colors and start with random brush strokes, and step by step while in the initial process, I decide what will be the direction of the painting, what shapes I will create, and what other colors I will add. In general, I like to create chaos but at the same time, it must have a certain movement or direction. Throughout the process, I work with brushes, spatula, and sponges to create different shapes. I mainly use acrylic paints, and occasionally I use oil. When I choose to use oil I mix it with a cold vax medium to get a creamer texture and transparency that allows for the previous layers to be seen.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Miri Baruch is a passionate professional abstract and figurative art painter since 2016. She was born in Argentina in 1964 and moved to Israel when she was 15 years old, she is married + 2. Miri has a BA degree in biophysical chemistry and worked for the hi-tech industry (intel) for 27 years. Miri kept connected to her artistic side by taking drawing classes and oil realistic painting workshops. In 2015, she decided to retire from Intel and pursue painting as a professional career. Inspiration comes to her from everyday activities, like observation in the street, a scene from television, a dream, a memory, etc. The process of making an abstract painting is an adventurous journey, it starts with a few random strokes and grows layer by layer until she feels the work is completed. For figurative paintings, Miri blends abstract elements into the figures to add excitement and surprise. Her artworks are displayed for sale in several Israeli galleries, at her Etsy on-line store, and at international online art galleries like Saatchi & Singulart. Miri has participated in several group exhibitions and hosted a solo exhibition.
