De Chirico is one of my favorite surrealist painters. His scenes of deserted Italian cities evoke a strong sense of melancholy, which is the emotion I felt when I visited small Italian towns many years ago. The unwrapped image is a metaphor for the delight I felt when I first discovered his paintings in my student days. The wrapping also serves as a frame opening into De Chirico's world. This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
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.
