Miriam Cahn stands tall as an example of a true artist. True artists like Miriam Cahn remind us what art’s original unique place was and is. To show us how we feel things — not how we think them. She is not driven by an urge to innovate the practice of art, to be different, by an urge to push an agenda, to sound smart… She is not driven by vanity. She is using art as a medium to find emotional truths. She is, in short, the real deal.
