The multi-media art works of Mira M. White bear 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. 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.
