Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The threaded lines suggest a physical barrier that interrupts the shapes and stops them from connecting and at the same time a transparency is created that allows the viewer to enter through the lines onto the painted surface.

The titles of each series can be interpreted as emotional, psychological and physical conditions.

This recent work continues to explore color, shape, composition, form and texture to titillate the eye and awaken the senses.

The titles of the new series "Shout" and "Crash" reflect frustration and anxiety in reaction to today's contemporary American society yet the work attempts to convey emotional content that is positive and optimistic through a personal abstract language.

The artist describes her work as follows: "A fine line between Sculpture and painting, Painting and drawing, Drawing and stitching, Stitching and healing, Healing and pleasure, Pleasure and seeing, Seeing and looking, Looking and touching, Touching and making ...Material and illusion, Thought and intuition, Mind and heart, Life and love."

Artist Profile

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.
