Miranda Skoczek

“My paintings speak of a desire to create sanctuary for the self” says Miranda Skoczek. In her work, combined energies of gestural freedom, opulent colour  and the physical qualities of paint emanate from the field of the canvas, extending to the viewer a sensual immersion within a haptic, temporal space. Further playing on a connection to perceptual depth and the passage of time, references are made to ancient cultures, the decorative arts and domestic architectures, proposing in the words of cultural critic Alain de Botton that ‘home is the guardian of our identity’.
