Miertje Skidmore Description

Miertje Skidmore’s work is widely represented in respected galleries throughout Australia, and is rapidly being sought by collectors within Australia and overseas countries in both corporate and private collections.

Selected Comments

“Miertje’s art has a twofold impact on viewers of her work. First, because of the large scale and use of vibrant colours, the room is filled with energy and movement. Secondly being drawn in to closer inspection the work delights and amazes you with the miniscule detailing of abstract aerated bubbles, and then almost volcanic eruptions of transparent and intense shards of colours that immerse and mesmerize your eyes and thoughts.”

“With their grand scale, bold use of colour, and high gloss finish, Miertje Skidmore’s abstracted landscapes, depict the power of the elements and their capacity for destruction and regeneration. Since her first ever solo exhibition at art images gallery Adelaide, Miertje Skidmore has exhibited throughout Australia, now represented by commercial galleries in Sydney Melbourne and Queensland, she has fast become one of our most sought after artists.”


Miertje Skidmore Statement

"I generally paint and see our earth with the surrounding universe in a vivid explosion of colours and never ending movement and energy. At times we all need to step back and listen to our body demanding a more serene environment to reboot ourselves; it may be something as simple as a walk on the beach with soft ripples of waves, with our feet in the warm sand. Even the warm sun slowly drying our plants after the rain or listening to nothing more than a few birds enjoying that same process.
This body of works acknowledges the need for those more subtle moments in life."
-Miertje Skidmore, 2015

Art often is seen and felt as an enlightening and emotive personal experience.
The visual language of spontaneous shards of dynamic colours against the softest cloudlike subtle hues, is how I express my artistic voice. In an abstract form, I like to engage others into their own perceptions of what they see. We all assimilate our environment and life’s experiences very individually which I personally express on canvas with varying overlays of transparent and opaque paints, even though the subject and meaning of each work is apparent to me it is still through the eyes of the observer that the final conclusions are made.
