ELEANOR GRACE MILLER
Things That Grow: the art of mutation is a series of 3D mixed media ‘boxes’, as well as paintings, depicting growing things – i.e. fruit, vegetables, spores, seed pods – in an unorthodox or non-traditional manner.
The work in this exhibit is based on the concept that anything; people, plants, cells, tree bark, hair strands are always different, even though we try to catalog, order, perfect, and collate…that mutation is really the natural order of things.
the deviation in the acceptable;the random in the standard;the irregularity in the conventional;the disorder in the conforming:to grow is to be aberrant.
A classically trained artist, Eleanor Grace Miller received her BA from Monmouth University, where she studied under Eleanore Mikus, a vanguard Minimalist, and Bernard Aptekar, one of the original SOHO Ten Downtown, and continued her studies at the National Academy School of Fine Arts. Miller has exhibited extensively throughout the East Coast, both in fine art galleries and corporate venues, and is the recipient of numerous awards, including Best of Show at the Museum of Fine Arts, Springfield, MA, the Anna Hyatt Huntington Award from the National Arts Club, and the Gamblin Artists Award from the Salmagundi Club. Her work is in both private and corporate collections. She is currently on the faculty at RoCA and the Pelham Art Center.
