Inspiring Artists - Miriam Böhm / by Enoch Ho

I first came across the work of Miriam Böhm from attending Art Basel several months ago.  What struck first was the beautiful geometric composition, how clean shapes and lines compose each rectangular frame.  Then I paid attention to the juxtaposition between 2D and 3D objects, one intertwining and overlaying upon another, creating an immense depth to each piece.  The most interesting part is the engagement of the mind, how one is invited to peel off layer by layer, almost figuring out the artist's construction in reverse.

Love how at any moment you're deciphering whether something is or was 3-Dimensional at what point, and how something in 2-Dimension can have more depth than it's length and width.
