Rob Miller Lancashire Artist

For me, making a painting is like making a poem,  both an expression of a feeling and an impression of a place;  I prefer to work outside on location. My focus is the passage of light whether thats in the corner of a  bright garden or high in the mountains under stormy skies.  I try and portray the sublime in nature. In many cases this is governed by the passage of light. Working outside makes this a direct experience. This experience gets better when the painting was created initially on a walk.

 

In the studio depending on the nuances of the paint, techniques and application of colour my work finishes somewhere along a continuum between abstractions and figurative, each brush mark a part of each paintings arpeggio of colour.  

 

I spend as much time as I can painting in Portugal and Spain.  I like the international dimension that this brings into my work it creates emotional tensions and confronts my English traditions of style which I have to come to terms with in my own work.

 

My work is in private collections in Britain, Europe and in the USA. I did an Art Diploma at Bolton University gaining a distinction in painting and then I did an OU MA  in the History of Art.

The inspiration for my paintings, wherever I am comes from walking through the land, This provides me with a direct sense of place at a particular time of day or season; Each brush mark or  line, I borrow from nature, wrought from an observation like a note or a word in a stanza; even a short walk can result, if everything is right, in a whole body of work almost as a poem or a meditation.
