Miranda Skoczek Joins Arthouse
Arthouse Gallery is delighted to welcome Melbourne-based artist Miranda Skoczek to our impressive stable of artists.
Skoczek’s practice engages with abstraction via painterly plays with form, colour, composition and gesture. Borrowing from the history of image making – from the iconography of ancient cultures to the decorative arts and domestic architectures – Skoczek creates lavish, celebratory works that embody her resonant fixation with beauty. This appropriative practice, where disparate images from myriad sources are recontextualised, fosters an allusive oscillation between antiquity and contemporaneity.
Skoczek holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from the Victoria College of Arts, University of Melbourne, and a Diploma of Applied Arts and Graphic Design from the Canberra Institute of Technology. The artist has exhibited her paintings and collages internationally as well as throughout Australia in numerous solo and group exhibitions.
