Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The beautiful tree lined streets in Fulham, London are in full bloom in the spring. The flowers range from delicate pale pastels to bold sensual colours and I am in love with their intricate shapes and delicious smell.

By building up many layers of texture and colour, using brushes and palette knives, Angelika creates a rich surface and vibrant relationships between random shapes and deliberate markings in her work. She also uses charcoal and oil pastels to heighten the botanical impressions and create depth and movement in her paintings. The drips in Angelika’s work illustrate the endless cycle of growth and decay in organic structures, which again is a reflection of life itself.

The botanical forms on the canvas are inspired by flowers but in an abstract way in order to create a visual language that gives the viewer room for their own interpretations and dialogues. There is a constant awareness in her work to create translucency and light within the paintings and to show the ethereal beauty of nature.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Bergen

Based in: United Kingdom

“departing from a single vision from nature, my paintings show her inner vitality and beauty not represented by appearance, but by the emotions these visions create in the viewer. There is never a direct translation, but it may be possible to trace the pure white light of a winter day or the vibrancy of a flower in a variety of unexpected ways.”

STATEMENT

I am a Norwegian artist, and the essence of my work is rooted in the colors from Scandinavia and the elegant design of Nordic art. The Scandinavian landscape comes alive during the long summer days and light nights of the midnight sun, and then becomes majestically silent as the autumn colors fade into the white snowfalls of winter. This quality of light gives colours a brilliance that is rarely found in other regions and the contrast between the cold almost whitish blue winter landscape and the bright colors of summer is inspiring to me, and my paintings are characterized by bold contracts between colors, textures, shapes and light.

A pink sunset, a subtle white washed image of a pale winter day or a delicate flower are examples of images which are blended together to create an abstract form of beauty.

The impact flowers have on my work is also profound, and I find endless inspiration from their vivid colours, intricate patterns and delicate hues. Using brushes and palette knives, I create rich surfaces with oil pastels, charcoal, acrylic and watercolor. The drips illustrate the endless growth and decay in organic structures and suggest a reflection on the cycle of life itself.


BIOGRAPHY

Born in Bergen, Norway, Angelika Millmaker is a contemporary artist whose work is characterized by an abstract representation of organic forms. She uses a beautiful palette dominated by shades of blue, sparkling white, dark green and subtle crimson to create luminous effects in her paintings.

Upon receiving a Bachelor of Science in Management Sciences from Manchester University she was accepted into Cass Business School in London where she obtained a Master of Science in Shipping, Trade and Finance.

Angelika worked in the oil & gas industry in Norway for many years before she relocated with her family to Houston, Texas. Having painted at various levels throughout her life Angelika now took up art full time in Houston and enrolled at The Glassell School of Art.

Her paintings have been acquired by both corporate and private collections in Europe, Canada and the US. She has also participated in leading Art Fairs and Group Exhibitions in London and Houston. Several of her paintings are displayed in commercial properties. Today Angelika and her family have moved back to Europe and she divides her time between London and Bergen.
