Josafat Miranda: Sacred Flight

Feb. 27 – March 21, 2010
Opening Reception Fri., Feb. 26, 6-9 pm

Sacred Flight consists of a multitude of components primarily unified by the imagination. The project plays with mystical objects and characters, justifying the coincidental yet ironic union of the two.

Josafat Miranda is a Mexican Artist now residing in South Florida. He limits himself to the use of canvas, also using wood, aluminum, paper, and cardboard as surfaces for his imagery. Miranda’s work begins with the basic principle of drawing with extreme precision and detail then incorporating different materials such as graphite, silver and gold leaf, acrylic, and the ancient technique of encaustic. His installations are representational of many of his paintings and give a feeling of movement and performance.
