Mira Reiss in her works shows an interest for figuration and the imagination. Most of her works can be loosely located within a neo-expressionist framework like distorted space, figures askew and boosted colors.
The artist shows an interest for the psyche of the creator: the inner perambulations and dramas of individuation. The paintings function almost like charts of personal symbolism and significance; to attempt to unravel them is to be drawn in, to find yourself wandering around, a traveler of sorts in a place not quite of this world.
In this colorful universe, the players are weighed down by their humanity, despite the revelry that surrounds them, and the paintings are at once poignant and carefree. Rich palette creates an undulating landscape of shapes and tones and artist’s style sets her apart from other contemporary artists.
