Miriam Pérez’s work encompasses a vast array of art forms and media including bronze sculpture, painting, drawing, fused glass and ceramic. She has also designed sets and lighting for theater and television, as well as choreographed and directed dance.
“I believe art has to communicate at first sight, at first touch, the same way the breeze or the sun touches your skin, or a smile or a tear touches your soul. My work is based in the effort and joy of movement, the struggle of life and how it reflects in the human soul and form. Life is movement and so is art.”
