Mia’s public art projects are designed to resonate with the location where they will be placed. She explores connections between the natural environment and the places where we live, our personal memories, and our collective civic and cultural stories.
Mia Weinberg uses her scanner to create digital photograms that call attention to the tiniest fragments of organic matter. She believes there is potential in the microscopic to reawaken us and bring us face to face with something we too often forget: that life on this earth is full of wonder, full of mystery.
Fractured Legacy is a photo-based installation that Mia created in the mid-1990s exploring her identity as a child of German Jewish refugees. The art now resides in Germany and is being shown on an ongoing basis.
Mia creates small abstract paintings that can be interpreted as imaginary worlds. With her fascination with exposing microscopic details, Mia scans her paintings and produces enlargements that reveal surprising elements of the painting process.
As an art consultant Mia sources and supplies original and reproduction art, offers consultation and installation services for interior designers, developers, architects, hospitals, seniors’ residences, strata corporations and businesses.
Photograms and prints of paintings are available mounted on aluminum or matted and/or framed. Licensing is available for digital versions. Commissions are accepted for both photograms and public art. Contact Mia for additional information.
What they are saying
Mia, I wanted to express my deep gratitude to you. The piece I took home yesterday is astonishing and as I know you saw yesterday, moves me deeply. I’ve spent much time already “seeing” many many things and then this morning I turned it upside down and saw more. There are hundreds of Angels, Guides, Fairies, Elves, Animals and other creatures I can’t put a name to. And when I pull back, I see it as a whole world. A world protected by these figures. I’m honoured to have your essence in my home. Jill Prescott
