Paintings by Artist Mira Sena at Caffe Driade

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about my artwork. I was born in 1984 in New York, in 2010 I moved to Philadelphia, and in 2011 I moved to the RTP area of North Carolina. During my childhood I took advanced courses in the arts, photography, music, and digital media; placing in a variety of showings during my developmental period. In recent years I have had a previous showing at Coffee & Crepes in November 2013 in NC, and the LGBT Center of Raleigh in April 2015. Growing up overlooking the Hudson River, I have always found the simplistic beauty of nature while also appreciating the elegancy of minimalism. Though stylistically different than the modernists and surrealists, I have always felt an intrinsic pull toward their slight alterations of realism, and how they transform a known object into something beautiful and new.

My artistic vision is that art represents life in its many forms, I choose to create pieces that reflect growth and change with focus on a quiet optimism and a statement of existence with everything else stripped away. In this showing, my media of choice is modified acrylics, by treating the acrylics as I would treat watercolors to create an airy lightness to my pieces.

In this showing, the pieces tie into a naturalistic theme with emphasis on the raw strength and perseverance of life in its many forms of renewal.
