Miriam Beichert

110 x 90 cm, acrylic on canvas, 2023

Miriam Beichert (*1999) lives and works in Stuttgart. She last studied in the class of Daniel Richter at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Beichert revisits the era of heavy, brick-like phones with a feeling of nostalgia while reflecting on the aesthetics of consumerism. Her paintings are portraits of different phone models, paying homage to outdated electronics that once served as the primary means of communication. With blurry lines and blackout screens, the phones appear as an unclear memory, a notion we cannot readily recall.
