For some time now, I’ve been stalking the work of Jeremy Miranda. I follow his blog and regularly visit his Etsy shop - always fighting off the urge to buy and hoard everything he produces. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet, but I’m hoping that at least one will be mine at some point in the near future! The problem is that I want one of his larger pieces and they have larger price tags, so I’ll just have to be patient.
Simply put, Jeremy Miranda is incredibly gifted. He has a knack for putting his technical dexterity and his seemingly limitless imagination together to create artwork that is engaging, thought-provoking, and beautiful. I am completely captivated by his style and the subject matter he depicts…it’s so fresh and unique. And JM is masterful with color. The palette in each piece articulates a very specific mood and feeling.
I’d describe Miranda’s work as mesmerizing in that he creates these dreamy, enchanting scenes. His paintings often show a world that combines realistic and surrealistic elements…and those are some of my favorite pieces because he takes the familiar and alters it so that you see it from an entirely different perspective.
Anyhow, I could keep going with the art babble, but I won’t. You need to get on to the good stuff…behold a few selections from Jeremy Miranda‘s impressive oeuvre:
|Night Harvest – included in upcoming group show “Narrative Fragments” at Quidley & Company in Boston
This is one example from his series of icebergs. In terms of the simple, straightforward subject matter, they are so different from the other work shown in this lineup. I would LOVE to collect these!
Well, what do you think? Any favorite pieces? If you’re completely obsessed like I am, you really must check out more of his work on JeremyMiranda.com, his Etsy site (where you can buy affordable prints), and at representing galleries Sebastian Foster and Quidley & Company. Next time I’m in Austin, I’m hoping to pop into Sebastian Foster to see some of the paintings in person.
