press release

“I work like a gardener,” the world-famous Spanish artist Joan Miró (1893-1983) has stated. Miró felt that his works of art grew forth of their own accord as long as he was sensitive to the material’s inherent power. He wished to create immediate, intuitive art liberated of intellectual and historical baggage.

ARKEN’s exhibition focuses on the last twenty years of Miró’s life when increasingly he was experimenting with the medium of sculpture. We are introduced to the artist's wondrous universe through painting, sculpture and drawing. All works are on loan from Fondation Maeght in Saint-Paul-de-Vence in southern France which owns a unique Miró collection.
