Ruffles, gold thread and the rhythmic groupings of color –
These are the seductive materials that invite us to look closer into Mirna Barakat’s extensive body of work.
Mirna explores the subtle changes that are discovered through layering, multiples and repetition.
One thing leads to another.
Minute variations in color and form arouse our curiosity in gently shifting shapes that are both playful and profound. She is a process driven artist who investigates the nature of materiality as the crux of her work.
Finding belonging and home through this exploration of materials and color is at the core of Mirna’s work. Searching for the cycles that make sense to her experience through groupings, rhythm and layers, she creates a depth to find and make meaning of the full experience of living.
