Miranda Terry creates paintings, objects, and installations that reflect upon the intangible qualities of remembrance, ingenuity, and function. She works with found objects that range from broken concrete to trash off the street.
“I pick up an object whose intended purpose has failed, and I say ‘No.’ Building these objects, I manipulate surfaces and materials in a tangible way while considering the intangible qualities of memory, resourcefulness, and function. I am interested in how the material lineage of seemingly inconsequential objects can converge into larger wholes that both reference and redefine our collective experience. My paintings and objects explore the tension between interdependence and autonomy.”
Miranda lives and works in San Marcos TX, where she recently received her BFA in Studio Art from Texas State University. She is currently intern at ICOSA Art collective in Austin and manages the painting studio at Texas State.
