Gill Miller

In my studio in Los Angeles 2013. To my right is Chain Drive, the series of paintings that I have been working on throughout the year. This series celebrates the round form and a "chain drive" design that promotes movement on the canvas. This celebrates the urban, the machine, and the organic. We are finally learning the importance of nature, the organic element, and its importance to our quality of life.

"Adam" by Gabriel Krekk

"Adam" by Canadian Watercolorist Gabriel Krekk, was painted in 2006. It is a study in the use of light and shadow. The deep shadows ask us what is inside this man, his soul and his spirit. And even though Adam is at least partially undressed and exposed, as in every person, these things are often cloaked and shrouded to the casual relationship and may not be made known until time allows.

"All That is Unseen", by Matthew Stone


"All that is unseen" exhibit by artist Matthew Stone at the Allan Nederpelt Gallery, New York. 2011

What is the artist saying? Is this a metaphor for the idea that we see only what we want to see? Or  perhaps as humans we can only take in so much visually at a time.

Georgia O'Keeffe, "Bejeweled Creamer"

 
Georgia O'Keeffe's "Bejeweled Creamer" is one of the most beautiful paintings that I've ever seen. This is saying a lot for an artist with the painting chops of O'Keeffe.

Georgia O'Keeffe

Born in 1887 in Wisconsin, she made her permanent home in New Mexico in 1949, which is how most of us think of her and where she lived. She worked in oil, pencil, clay and most famously in watercolor. Her organic and sensuous watercolors, such as "Bejeweled Creamer", are her trademark masterpieces.

Green & Black, Acrylic on Canvas

Titled "Green & Black", like all of my art, it is painted with spray acrylic on canvas. I'm fascinated with the round form, and the "chain drive" pattern, which is the series that this piece comes from. The round form and the chain pattern create a movement on the canvas that I find very interesting. I have been painting this series throughout 2013.
