a minimal life
The outbreak of the recent pandemic inspired Mirjam Berloth to begin painting onto photos. The images are of moments that are dear to her. The painted fields represent empty canvasses containing the promise of hope of a new beginning. Also, they stand for her love for Minimal Art.
Further along in the project she will place these works, virtually, in the museums that are well known for showing formal art from the 1960’s.
In this way she makes it possible to show her work along with the artists’ she admires so much.
