Vancouver based international artist Miriam Aroeste traveled extensibly and lived in several countries following her wild sense of discovery and adventure. In Italy and France she had the opportunity to get deeply involved in the arts and establish close relationships with some established artists leading to a career in the visual arts and a lifelong appreciation and passion for art. Miriam’s work conveys her inner journey through life. Her abstract themes explore a universal understanding that transcends gender, race or subject matter; it is deliberately inclusive and open. Her paintings are ultimately explorations of line, color and gesture
The meditative quality of Aroeste’s work goes beyond any specific association, her abstract compositions invite to create a spiritual plane for the viewer to reflect and she hopes to achieve an emotional response, which is not conceptual, but something felt on a more instinctive level.
Aroeste has exhibited in both solo and group exhibitions in Canada, USA and France. She has been involved in the arts for over 20 years in many different capacities. Her work is held in collections in Canada and Internationally.
