About the artworkThis Wall Sculpture is a classic 2-piece from Mireia Serra created in 2019. "In these pieces, I wanted to use profusely my language based on my iconic objects: maps, worlds, books, cameras, the sea, whales, etc... Many journeys appear, but all of them reflect the journey of life. This is because with these works and their creation process I wanted to be more myself, to capture the essence of these works from within, without fear of showing what is there. " - Mireia Serra, Barcelona
Mireia Serra was born in 1973, she graduated from the Llotja School of Art in Barcelona, specialized in iron and bronze, then took an advanced bronze casting course in Llotja de Barcelona. She further studied in Barcelona with the sculptor Jorge Egea in the Museu Europeu dâ€™Art Modern (European Museum of Modern Art), improving her portrait technique.
Mireia creates sensuous sculptures showing the beauty of snapshots caught in life which are full of emotions and feelings along the life journey. Her little artworks capture the beauty of moments: A young lady challenged by the adventure of a new trip, a young man pondering about his dreams, a lost girl thinking about different options to know more about herself. Mireia vividly demonstrates how a piece of fine art sculpture could incorporate into our daily life, linking us with art that inspires and triggers us to contemplate about life and relationship. The sculptress aptly concludes her work as creating â€œFigurative sculptures depicting contemporary everyday scenes. Reflect my inner world thus expressing moods and desires, feelings, joys and concerns stemming from my relationship with the worldâ€.
At present Mireia lives and works in Barcelona, Spain.
