Miriam Costanza was born in Mendoza, Argentina. Devoted to painting since the age of ten, she attended the University of Fine Arts in Buenos Aires before settling in Miami in 1992 and moving to New York City in 2009. After a 40-year artistic journey infused with spirituality and inner devotion, Costanza has developed a style characterized by pure feeling, expressed through geometric abstraction. Costanza avoids commonplace grid patterns in favor of infinite curves and converging planes that often exceed the boundaries of the canvas. Her color palette is vibrant, primary and compelling.
The materials chosen by Costanza have a special poetry, the use of woven linen canvas is not random. This material is considered one of the noblest for its strength and ability to last over time, which Constanza chooses because, in her words, “this material honors the idea of transcendence, for its nobility and purity”. On the other hand, the subtlety of the tones and the texture given by the sand, make the viewer stop and inhabit a different concept of time being able to perceive her works firstly from a visual viewpoint and later awaken the tactile sense, given by the reflection of light on subtle textures.
Her works are held in numerous private and public collections in Europe, Latin America, and the United States. She currently lives and works in New York City.
