Miriam Cabessa was born in Morocco, raised in Israel, and has lived and worked in New York City since 2000. Her slow action painting has been internationally recognized since 1997 when she represented Israel at the Venice Biennale.
Over the past two decades, she has abstained from using brushes, opting to make marks with objects and her body. Her imagination ranges from organic to mechanistic with surfaces that are both haptically handmade and digitally serene. Miriam has shown extensively in the U.S., Europe, and Israel.
