Miriam Wosk, Time, Space, Cosmology and Life, 2003–2005 (detail)

The first solo museum exhibition of Santa Monica-based artist Miriam Wosk, Euphoria featured three large-scale paintings that were deeply encrusted with a glorious profusion of pearls, glitter, crystals, starfish, collage, and paint. The works resonated palpably with the energy of counterpoints–intuition balanced against craft, physicality in conversation with spirituality, and precision coupled with abandon. Combining pictorial elegance with audacious excess, Wosk explored a fantastical, primordial universe born of pouring, painting, airbrushing, gluing, embedding, and coating in a devotional, mantra-like repetition.
