About the work:
Silhouettes With Yellow, Original Painting by Diana Miller.
This piece is part of The Great Escape, a solo exhibition of uplifting work from Diana Miller.
Miller’s new works are expressive abstract paintings that sing with an experimental colour palette; they are simultaneously energetic and soothing. Each painterly composition is abuzz with brushstrokes in every direction, anchored within a loose puzzle of shapes – sometimes amorphous, sometimes loosely geometric – woven together with a web of free and intuitive line work.
Miller describes the work as “a way into a multitude of escapist worlds, far removed from our current collective reality and also quite removed from my previous painted work. The bright colours and often obscure compositions are intended to help transport the viewer into alternate realities, where the oppressive reality of Covid-19 is not, and freedom is a given.”
