"Our Diana Miller painting is exquisite and is an investment we will always treasure."
Jeanine Forcioli, Bendigo, Victoria
I have been painting and making art for 12 years and currently work from my studio in Newrybar in the Byron Bay hinterland, northern NSW, Australia. My paintings are currently sold at homewares stores, Fenton & Fenton in Melbourne and Summer and Salt, in Peregian Beach, Qld. As well as selling from my own online store I also sell my art prints and products on The Block Shop online. Follow me on Instagram @dianamillerartist
The act of painting, the complexity of abstraction and the sensuality of colour are what interest me.
I gather and stores visual information as subconscious data, referencing landscape, objects, texture. I document the world around me through colour and personal experience, garnering inspiration from influential contemporary artists.
My art-making is an intuitive process. I enjoy the immediacy of acrylics and I work quickly and spontaneously, keeping my analytical brain at bay, guided instead by instinct. I work in I have no interest in figuration, representing or recreating.
I am currently building my painting vocabulary to play, push and pull my practise and to challenge the limitations of the medium – to wrestle with paint and other materials such as paper, wood and found objects from which I reinterpret new forms. I take interest in the intervals between shapes and spaces, and how these operate in painting, how colour reciprocates against colour, the process of adding, merging, expanding and removing.
My work brings together elements both physical and intangible.
