Miranda Reichhardt

STUDIO 215a

Miranda Reichhardt’s work uses painting and text to explore ideas of self, trauma, gender, shame and sexuality. She explores the idea of the self-portrait as a surrogate of the self. She shares: “I continue pushing and defining my own visual limits of dreamlike void and the unexpected play of characters and objects within it. Through this line of inquiry, I aim to further consider the symbolic and visual spectrum of nuance versus obviousness—how these tensions might inform the roles of humor, yearning, or emotion in my work. How can sorrow be absurd—how can it be fuzzy? What are the rules of my fabricated worlds? And am I the queen of my own anthill?” Reichhardt received her MFA from UNC-Greensboro.
