Joan Miro was a catalan painter who combined abstract art with surrealist
fantasy. His style evolved from the tension between his fanciful poetic impulse
and his vision of the hardness of the modren life.
In the 1930s miro became more experimental working with techniques of collage
and sculptural assemblage and creating sets and costumes for ballets. Hes
designed tapestries in 1934 which led to his interest in the monumental and in
murals. Miros paining began to be exhibited regualarly in french and american
Throughout the 1930s miro produced scale sculpture objects and collages and
works on paper ,some were made in unconventional ways he also makes use of
found materials like sandpapers, threads and a mirror fragment.
Miros uses symbols in his paintings such as dotes , stars, planets and birds and
often just 3 traits crossing at the centre.
Thus red, green, yellow and blue are dominant in his paintings to be seen at the
exhibition illuminated by natural light in the Richard Meier building.
