Bio

 

Mirland Terlonge (American b. 1991) is a multidisciplinary artist from Miami, Florida. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Florida and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute. Being born to first generation immigrants from Haiti and Jamaica her work is an investigation of social politics and it's consequences.

Her work is heavily influenced by her childhood experiences of working along-side her mother who is an Event Florist. She uses props and elements from weddings, parties, and funerals to expose harsh realities hidden within them. She relates the residue of these elaborate social events to distorted public perceptions and re-contextualizes these elements as a critique and question of her social experience. Her previous work in floral design influences her aesthetic choices and how she frames her questions.
