Original paintings on canvas and masonite. These abstract designs were incubated during a 10 year period of information gathering on the subjects of herbology, fractals, early childhood and biology. My paintings aim to strike a visceral chord of recognition as recurring themes of aquatic life, cellular action, and Rayleigh Taylor Instability. The latter concept happens in Miriam’s paintings due to low viscosity fluid trying to act from all sides to penetrate the fluid of higher density. This effect is ubiquitous in nature and the universe, as can be seen in aerial photography of the oceans, cosmic dust clouds, and processes on the microscopic level, such as cellular division.
