Brooklyn maker Darcy Miro draws inspiration from nature, architecture, and the body. Large, bold, layered, and heavily textured, her forms utilizing oxidized silver and black diamonds recall medieval armor but in a futuristic guise. In speaking of her work, she says: “The metal material is totally altered and it is also sculpted in different abstract shapes, some recall flowers, others a topographic map and occasional geometry among other references. I observe everything in my daily life; the water drips on the edge of the sink, the arrangements of leaves on the sidewalk, the relationship of a skirt’s hem to the legs within. I obsess over each mark, the controlled or random details are critical.” Miro graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in Jewelry and Metalsmithing. She has collaborated on architectural and sculptural projects in New York City, where she is represented in the permanent collection of the Museum of Arts and Design.
