Amelia Midori Miller
Amelia Midori Miller was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1985. She received her B.F.A. with Honours from the School of Visual Arts, NY in 2007, and an M.F.A in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts in 2012. She is a recipient of the Paula Rhodes Memorial Award and has participated in several international group exhibitions including “239 Days” at Allegra LaViola Gallery in NY, "Octet" at the Pera Museum in Istanbul, and "Dürer war auch hier" at the PAN Kunstform in Emmerich, Germany during her residency there in 2008. In 2013, her work was exhibited in a three person exhibition entitled "Ramshackle Kaleidoscope" at the Art Bridge Drawing Room in New York. She works in Brooklyn, NY.
Much like the consistently obstructed views of an urban window-scape, the layers of the paintings entangle with one another in Miller's paintings. The primary architectural forms exist in the immediate plane—the solid structures of lines and grids are the tangible entry points separated by the distinct painting methods and various colours employed. Miller used to be a figurative painter, but now she enjoys looking at abstract paintings more since she started simplifying and abstracting forms in my own work. Her favourite medium to work with is oil on linen stretched over a panel as it maintains the same absorbency of fabric and the panel makes a very stable support. She makes very quick sketches to plot out where things are going to go, and then the rest is decided upon painting. She also draws on photographs she has taken to figure out the various layers in the paintings.
