About The Artwork

The wall sculptures in the “Nightshift” series are part of a new cycle of artworks entitled “Perspective Shift”, in which Miriam Smidt explores the uniqueness of human perception and the concepts of truth and reality. These wall objects invite us to look at the world from a completely new perspective by simply taking a step to the side. The chameleon effect in some of the structural elements of these intensely colored artworks means that two people standing directly next to each other perceive different versions of the works. The title of the series is reflected in the cool shades of blue and turquoise. The fascinating structure of the works is created by a bold material mix of PU foam and vinyl foils on small wooden panels. There is a circumferential indentation on the back of the works, which allows the picture to be hung on a nail on the wall - and you decide the orientation yourself. So you can experience your work of art again and again! Experience the fascinating fusion of colors and textures that is created in these works. Miriam Smidt's artistic style is characterized by the use of unconventional materials and bold colorr compositions. With exhibitions in various major European cities and a growing international collector base, she has established herself as an up-and-coming innovative representative of abstract art. Immerse yourself in this multifaceted world of colors and shapes and let yourself be inspired by its irresistible appeal.

My works embody liveliness and motion — their lucid beauty deliberately forms a counterpoint to the vicious harshness of contemporary culture and opposes its pain with confidence. Overcoming despair through art is, to me, the highest form of hope. Since my childhood on the North Sea coast, where the ebb and flow of the tides mark the passage of time, I have been shaped by a love of water and art. Both resisted the vast desolation of the landscape in which I grew up and the emptiness of my melancholy youth, which was affected early on by the confrontation with my own finitude. Nevertheless, I studied political science and German language and literature studies and initially worked as a social scientist until a brain tumor diagnosis in 2016 marked my personal turning point and I returned to painting and, thus, to water. y fluid technique explores the entanglements of the individual with time and transience and stresses the diffuse boundaries of control and letting go — movement and standstill, overflow and emptiness, constant and volatile components. My own finitude is always in the literal and proverbial back of my head as I negotiate artistically with an invisible opponent: the faster I move, the faster time runs through my hands. But, if I pause, I can conquer it for a moment, wrest a NOW from it and transform it into eternity. In the interplay between stages of creative flows and cautious observation, which defines my creative process, the outside world stands equally still. “What is time? A secret – insubstantial and omnipotent (…) A motion intermingled and fused with bodies existing and moving in space. But would there be no time if there were no motion? No motion if there were no time? Is time a function of space? Or vice versa? Or are the two identical?” (Thomas Mann) After a phase of gestural, dynamic application of water-based paste and inks, the liquids develop a life of their own, unfolding in graceful movements and effortlessly taking up space. During days-long drying processes I dissolve into the suppleness of the color gradients. I aid or slow down their flow — always knowing that my impact is limited by the idiosyncratic element of water. My artistic guidance of the painting’s development is ephemeral. Movement becomes its own static image when the water evaporates.
