Patricia A. MilleR

 

As an artist, I ask myself what role can I play to support preservation of the environment? My consciousness about the beauty and vulnerability of nature has been heightened by both the global climate crisis and by my stage of life, which allows more time for reflection. Every landscape awakens the senses and makes one aware of the uniqueness of different environments. Glaciers are seen chunking and melting in my work, while a rain forest shows various types of trees sharing the soil’s nutrients peacefully, as we would wish for in a multi-cultural world.

Using collage and mixed media/assemblage, I attempt to transform the amazing phenomenon of nature into expressive images. These media enable me to interpret the natural world partly in abstraction, partly in reality. I use a composite of personal photographs, found and hand-made paper, acrylics, pastels, and objects (e.g. stones, shells, sand, bark, clay) and multiple gels, such as crackle, glass bead, lava, modeling paste, which add texture and depth.
