Quad City Arts Presents Works By Elaine Miller Through January
From now through January 28, 2022, 52 Arts presents “Uncommon Ground,” paintings by Elaine Miller. The public is invited to attend the closing reception on January 29 from 11am-1 pm where the artist will be present, and refreshments will be served.
Elaine Miller, of Chicago, presents four large scale paintings depicting the four seasons along with smaller canvases. Miller states, “This work is my life’s work. It is a homage to the magnificence of nature and a lament for its decimation. In these paintings I work to convey the many layers of reality through the elements of the landscape genre. Sometimes the landscape is a record of the emotions and relationships of humanity, a witness to the big circle of seasons that continuously spins part our private triumphs and losses. Many times, the paintings are a documentation of the timeless mysteries of nature and its continuing downward spiral. As we move together into uncertain prospects, it is the hope and purpose of my practice to work towards creative solutions to a regenerative and ethical future, a hope that sustains my work and life.”
