WATER. SALT. AIR.
Water. Air. Salt. is part of Atelier MIRU's 2019 BEAST collection. The base is a previous painting by the artist that has been overlaid with the eyes, painted in oil, and the feather-like texture created with a sculptural material. There are still glimpses of the painting underneath, which adds dimension and a sense of curiosity.
The piece is a stunning example of contemporary art that marries the surrealist style that has consecrated the artist and its translation into today. The textural quality invites the viewer to touch, stimulating both the visual and tactile senses. Only one question remains: what does the painting underneath look like?
