ABOUT THE ARTIST AND SHOWCASE:
Miranda Boire is pleased to showcase her first collection of oil paintings at Liquid Amber Tattoo & Art Collective, where she is a full-time Tattoo Artist.
Miranda often paints about nature and fantasy but enjoys exploring dark subject matter in particular. Some of the pieces in this collection address humanitarian issues. These are based on difficult photographs, which Miranda attempts to make more palatable for the viewer using bold colours and surreal detailing. In her travels to Africa, Miranda has learned to value human unity while painfully aware of the challenges that divide and alienate people from each other.
Part of this exhibit will also include a ‘Secret Jar’ and online secret submission page is an exercise Miranda’s devised to underscore the importance of recognizing the commonalities that unite us. With this ‘Secret Art Installation’, we invite you to anonymously share your secret. Why? Because while all our secrets are different and make us feel alone, we all have them, which is one of the ways we’re all the same. Fill out our anonymous online ‘Secret Jar’ out to participate. These secrets will be printed as part of the Secret Art Installation in our studio from Aug 30-Sept 27, 2019.
Partial proceeds of art sold in this showcase will be donated to Medecins Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders), which was chosen as the featured charity due to their record of providing unbiased life-saving care to humans in need around the world.
We are currently accepting applications for Artist showcases to be displayed at our studio. If you are a local (Vancouver/Lower Mainland, B.C.) Artist and would like to have your work considered for display at Liquid Amber Tattoo & Art Collective, please fill out the form below. Once your application has been reviewed and approved, we will be in contact with you.
