About

 

studio“Melanie Miller paints in an idyllic studio on an island in the Thames, the seemingly bucolic nature of the paintings is underscored by a toughness, the layers of paint and gesso built up and removed sometimes leaving traces of something before. The indigenous nature of the subjects is important; they are not exotic but accessible, familiar yet powerful placed in their ambiguous dark spaces.”

 

 

“From the darkest spaces comes great beauty.”
