Pueblo Indian pottery is one of my favourite types of ceramics. I greatly admire the simple shapes combined with bold images and earth colours. The pottery reminds me of the indigenous cultural tradition in the Southwestern United States which existed long before Europeans invaded the Americas. Zia pottery, with it depiction of birds and strong geometric patterns has a special charm. The unwrapped image is a metaphor for my delight when I first discovered Pueblo Indian art.
Thomas Miller turns his canvas into a time machine, bridging past and present. Inspired by still life and portrait paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Thomas mixes in touches of Modern Art. As time and technology march forward, Thomas sees art as the enduring expression of our shared human experience. Ever the history buff, Thomas enjoys referencing the great artists in his paintings - reinventing classic pieces by Vermeer or Ingres. Fun fact: Thomas spent 15 years traveling the world with the Mermaid Theatre as a designer and performer.
