Mira Lehr (American , )
The mysteries of nature are the subject matter of Mira Lehr’s work. Juxtaposing abstract and natural elements she combines unconventional materials to create free form assemblages. This work references the Coriolis Effect which is caused by the earth’s rotation and induces the oceans and atmosphere to move in circular currents.
