Samper’s installation works are inspired by Icelandic landscapes.
Mireya Samper is born in Iceland but she is an international artist as her artworks testifies clearly. She studied art in Iceland and France, and has lived and worked around the world. Mireya works in a variety of materials depending on the idea they serve and the context. In her recent work she uses Japanese paper, Icelandic rocks worn smooth by the sea, coloured water and silver leaf. This choice of materials gives the art an almost metaphysical dimension and we sense the hardness of the rock, the lightness of the paper, the fluidity of the water and the clear shine of silver.
