‘Suggested Icons’ 2019

Nicholas Thompson Gallery

A New Exhibition Of Raw, Gestural Works From Miranda Skoczek

One of Melbourne’s most collectible contemporary artists opens her first show of the year tomorrow.

Melbourne-based artist Miranda Skoczek rings in her first exhibition for the year with Suggesting Icons at Nicholas Thompson Gallery in Collingwood.

Totems and trophies from Miranda’s subconscious emerge from densely coloured backgrounds in Suggesting Icons. ‘I am possessed by colour… as I am with a physical expression that is playful, instinctual and led by experience,’ Miranda explains of her painterly, gestural works that almost call out to you from the other side of the room.

A dominating palette of greens from deep-sea to moss is spliced and layered with slivers of acidic yellow and candy pink – an intuitive control of colour that is signature to Miranda’s raw, expressive visual language.

Following her exhibition at Nicholas Thompson Gallery, Miranda’s work will also be included in the forthcoming exhibition Gorman: Ten Years of Collaborating at Heide Museum of Modern Art in March.
