Painting is prayer for mixed media artist Mira M. White who believes that visual art has a transformative purpose. She tries to synthesize different influences in her life into a rich and complex imagery that tells of the connection between the outer experience of daily life and inner world of a developing spiritual heart. When viewing her multi-media art works one bears witness to a personal mythology of deeply felt images that stem from a lifelong preoccupation with and devotion to life as an ongoing journey of change and transformation. Her work with multiple media includes oils, acrylics, watercolor, soft pastels, encaustics and all drawing media. Her images usually inhabit ambiguous spaces, watery and atmospheric. Pieces are layered and developed over an extended period. Sequence, chronology and time play a significant role in these works, regardless of medium. There is often an intentional blurring of boundaries between the physical and the psychical- this is what sustains her interest and what continuously opens up future possibilities.
