Abstract – Barrier

Again, I tried my hand at applying the style of Miró‘s Constellation Series to my own work. What I love about this series is the density of icons and outlines of preposterous beings.  I started reading my catalog of the 1993 Miró exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York to get a sense of the origin of his creativity.  What I have learned was that Miró was driven to establish his own vision.

The Constellation Series was painted from 1940-41, during his dark experiences of World War II. With more reading I hope to understand much more about Miró, especially this series. For now I am just looking at the surface features of these paintings to see how I can modify them to tell my own story.

Here is today’s attempt:
