Remembering Miriam Wosk

Excerpted from the Los Angeles Times, November 11th:

"Her art was definitely a major deal and her use of materials broke a lot of boundaries," Billy Shire told The Los Angeles Times. "She kind of put forth in her work that art could be beautiful as well as meaningful."

Working in paint, pastel and collage on paper, Miriam Wosk often began with an anatomical image that she smothered "in veil upon veil of floral ornament and pattern, creating a sort of gothic, hyper-decorative Surrealism that is as invigorating for the imagination as it is for the eye," according to a 2006 Times review of the show "Sequins and Skeletons" held at the now-defunct Billy Shire Fine Arts Gallery in Culver City.
