Miriam Aroeste is a Canadian contemporary artist whose work has both abstract visual appeal as well as an underlying conceptual basis. She has always been interested in “depicting authentic, spontaneous emotion and experience in colorful, abstract ways, finding beauty and satisfaction in that which is intensely genuine and ultimately imperfect.” Fascinated by the inner working of the mind, impulse and defense, conscious and unconscious thought, Aroeste utilizes the power of color, line, and space to create visually captivating works. She hopes that her paintings will provoke and evoke personal narratives in viewers, allowing them to search for and find new meaning over time. Born in Mexico City, Miriam Aroeste lives and works in Vancouver.
