ABOUT- MIRIAM ESCOFET
Her work has evolved over the years through many themes and ideas, including still life, architecture and perspective, allegory, imaginary composition and most recently portraiture. But the unifying passion in all of her paintings is describing a sense of space, volume, atmosphere and detail, arriving at a kind of hyper real expression of the subject matter.
Painting mainly in oils, her technique is extremely detailed, applying many layers and glazes to achieve a sense of space, mood and character. An oil painting can take months to finish.
For her, paintings act as portals – worlds one can visually step into and be transported and sometimes even transformed by. She believes the primary function of art is to trigger a moment of transcendence in the viewer, in short to fill one with wonder.
For the past decade or so portraiture has become the main theme of her work. She was awarded the 1st Prize in the BP Portrait Award, and in 2019 I was commissioned to paint a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
