Miranda Creswell

Project Artist

“Strangely, although the Horespower project involves archaeology and static objects, there’s a strong focus on the idea of movement – of people, horses and ideas going from one place to another."

Miranda Creswell is an artist of many interests

Miranda Creswell describes herself as an artist “interested in unusual environments” and a few snapshots from her career show what she means: teaching art in Brixton Prison, supporting spinal injury patients by painting nature alongside them and celebrating biodiversity and nature recovery with three vast oil paintings at the Doddington estate in Lincolnshire. She’s held art residencies at the Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Harris Manchester College and the CentQuatre in Paris, among others, and she became the first Artist in Residence at Oxford University’s Institute of Archaeology, working on a series of projects on the English landscape, the history of rivers and the creative process of pottery. Miranda recently made films with drawings about women scientists, a collaboration funded by L’Oréal with the Zoology Department of  Oxford University and the Physics Department of the University of Cambridge.
