I prefer not to use the term "abstract" as a noun because it seems so finite. I like to use it as a verb since my paintings are still in the process of unraveling.

About the Artist


Queens, New York-based artist Amelia Midori Miller (b.1985) creates abstract and collage-based paintings inspired by her urban upbringing. She references the notion of obstruction in her oil paintings through the layering of forms and contrasting weights, colors, and textures to create both organic and structured compositions that are reminiscent of the chaos and energy of the city.
