Born in W.A. and now residing in Victor Harbor S.A., Miertjes Skidmore’s artistic voice has been heard and applauded by critics and corporate and private collectors world-wide.
“I don’t think you paint abstracts, I think they are an epic scaled mythical psychedelic fantasy. I like to engage others into their own perceptions of what they see.”
Miertjes’s ability to draw the viewer into closer inspection of her energetic work, delighting and amazing them on a grand scale, is an art form in itself. Her bold use of vibrant colours on her high gloss finished abstracted landscapes that depict the power of the elements and their capacity for destruction and regeneration, immerse and mesmerise from every angle.
Miertjes’s work is widely represented in respected galleries throughout Australia and overseas and Artworx is thrilled to be included in that esteemed list.
‘Miertjes's art has a twofold impact on viewers of her work. First, because of the large scale and use of vibrant colours, the room is filled with energy and movement. Secondly being drawn in to closer inspection the work delights and amazes you with the minuscule detailing of abstract aerated bubbles, and then almost volcanic eruptions of transparent and intense shards of colours that immerse and mesmerise your eyes and thoughts.’ ‘With their grand scale, bold use of colour, and high gloss finish, Miertje's abstracted landscapes, depict the power of the elements and their capacity for destruction and regeneration.
