Eleanor Miller presents visions of the natural world
which possess an ethereal quality. Each image is safely ensconced
in a terrarium-like amnion of spiritual reflection. Her paintings
refer to the sublime as well as the small unseen things, all regarded
with equal substance. Representational imagery is juxtaposed with
dripping, abstracted and splotched paint on a textured surface.
In her quest to represent, ". . . life's continuing process and
the mystery of evolution", Ms. Miller transports us to a primordial
world, without the great disturbance bestowed upon our planet by
the phenomenon of civilization. Plant and animal life float through
a mist of awakening, peacefully tending to a shared existence in
which competition seems absent and harmony abundant. This work addresses
the spiritual potency of nature, and celebrates the fragile balance
between the natural and developed world in which we live.
