Through Recent History with Myrrh
Since high school, when Myrrh did service work in the inner city in Philadelphia 1951-4,
she has been interested in showing social and political realities in her art.
Myrrh's travel sketches:
Myrrh has a journalistic bent, and enjoys documenting her trips with sketches.
What interests Myrrh most are those indeterminate areas that scientists love to explore but can never fully explain.
The series took 18 years to develop.
Originally painted on large, 45” sheets of clear plexiglas which hung in windows, Myrrh now presents these as 24” fine arts digital prints, an edition limited to one artist proof and three prints.
Myrrh has explored patterns in nature in many media. How patterns occur is a study in itself.
Some of Myrrh's works are speculative, abstract, yet very personal.
By Artful Recycling, Myrrh has made whimsical sculptures.
