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 work from the Tease series is a simple composition that is subtle and playful.
The threaded line forks out creating an opening onto the painted ground.
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.
