In her large scale oil paintings, Brooklyn-based artist Jay Miriam finds beauty in the mundane. She examines what lies in the ordinary, captivated by the seemingly small moments of life. Miriam’s contemplative practice involves painting from memory, with bold mark making and loose brushstrokes. Known for her portrayals of nude feminine figures, Miriam’s subjects exude a playful sense of mystery.

Jay Miriam’s paintings contain a caldron of earthly delights, dreamscapes and momento mori, stirred up and splayed loose for the hungry viewer.
