MIRANDA THORNE PIERCE


Miranda Pierce is an artist living in New York City.

Utilizing formalist qualities and rigor, she frames thoughts as text drawings, found still lives as photographs and arrange colorful items from dollar stores as sculptures to subvert 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.
