Deven Golden, New York art critic from Artcritical and Art Monkey Wrench, wrote about Miller’s work :
"So great effort is made in pursuit of uniformity, but it is human imperfection that is embraced and higlighted with each action...Holly Miller's practice offers a visual tactility we can see floating before us, but never touch"
The threaded lines suggest a physical barrier that interrupts the shapes and stops them from connecting and at the same time a transparency is created that allows the viewer to enter through the lines onto the painted surface.
The titles of each series can be interpreted as emotional, psychological and physical conditions.
This work, part of the series called Rise is inspired by city silhouettes of buildings.
Their bold shapes subtlety deconstruct through the accumulation of drawn threaded lines that line them.
The compositions underscore the contrast in color and form.
The shapes seem to rise up and could be a metaphor for a state of mind.
