Artist Name

Holly Miller

Born: 1958

Hometown: Buffalo

Based in: Brooklyn

Holly Miller is an American abstract artist whose paintings strive to merge the optical with the tactile through the language of abstraction.
After a long journey of experimenting, the artist started getting involved with thread - a material that has properties of drawing yet is tactile and sculptural, that relates to canvas and carries endless metaphors. She began drawing with a long needle and thread instead of a pencil on canvas. She found a visual medium that combined drawing, painting and sculpture and yet remained simple and humble. She had achieved an economy that was reached through many years of exploring, taking risks, discovering and then discarding what wasn't absolutely necessary. By distilling her experiences, thoughts, feelings and emotions, she has created an abstract personal language that has become the essence of her work.
