Rachel J Miller (1974) was born in Scotland and brought up in Europe and USA. Since 2013 she lives and works in Ytterjärna, outside of Stockholm. Miller started her career as an artist in Sacramento, California and has early on been devoted to exploring archetypes in her many series of portraits and self- portraits.

 

Over the last 20 years, her work has predominantly been shown in the state of California, for example at solo shows at Tower Gallery and Deep and Beatnik Studios.

 

Miller also teaches painting with focus on portrait to both professionals and amateurs around the world, sharing with them her experimental style of layering with paint as well as her passion and love for the natural and spiritual.

 

 

"I paint when I’m happy

I paint when I’m sad

I paint when inspired

and I paint when I’m mad.

I paint with eyes open

I paint with them closed

(I paint with my fingers,

My elbows and toes)

I paint what we can see,

and I paint what we know

But mostly I paint where

words just won’t go."

 

(Statement, Rachel J. Miller, 2018)

 

 

For ‘In Our Nature’ – Rachel J Miller´s first solo show at Galleri Majkens, she exhibits a series of large portraits – acrylics on canvas – depicting not only humans but animals alike. Touching on this duality, her show wishes to highlight the complexity of our relationships to ourselves, and our will to co-exist with animal-life. The exhibition runs from April 7th to May 20th 2018.
