MIRANDA THORNE PIERCE


Miranda Pierce is an artist living in New York City.

Utilizing formalist qualities and rigor, she composes thoughts as text drawings, frames found still lives as photographs, and arranges colorful items from dollar stores as sculptures. She subverts the notion of the appropriate conversation, the appropriate materials, the appropriate subjects. She finds formal beauty amidst that which is discarded or dismissed. Her work is an homage to the banal, the humble and the cheap; it elevates to celebrate. In all its forms it heaps praise on everyday objects and everyday life. She uses humor, focus, and abstraction to revere stuff and junk.
