Eileen Miller Artist Bio:
I have lived in Montreal, Canada all my life. My inspiration is not one artist in particular, it is a compilation of many. My greatest inspiration is probably the human figure itself, and human nature, together they pose some of the most interesting subjects to create. My work tends to be free and painterly with contrasts of color. I feel that I have not said everything I have to say with my work yet, and more soul searching and emotion is yet to be seen in my work. I have a thousand paintings in my head, but I can only do one at a time! For me, painting should have an intimacy, a mysteriousness, a sensuality. At its best, my work also has an edge; something in it that takes a moment, a second look, an effort to comprehend. As with all art, what you pull from my paintings depends on your own experiences - but what a wonderful opportunity to explore emotions in the sometimes bold and sometimes subtle colours. One must be aware and have the ability to understand the reality, for without that knowledge, one can never successfully, truly bring it to partial or total abstraction. Meandering back and forth from reality to abstract keeps me in perspective, a reminder that there is a reason somewhere in my mind, whether just a line or a shape for the creation of this finished painted canvas. Painting helps keep me grounded. It enables me to refocus and adjust my perspective towards life's ups and downs. I love the use of bright and happy colours. I like to surround myself with happiness, happy people, and positive happenings. Often times, we take life too seriously, we forget how to enjoy! Challenging my greatest fears enabled me the liberty of living and loving life. The unknown can be our worst enemy or can be our most exciting, wonderful friend.
