I have long admired Japanese woodblock prints for their beauty of design, elegant line and subtle use of colour. It is little wonder that this art form had such a huge impact on European painting and poster design when it was first seen by the French impressionist artists. Hokusai is one of my favourite artists and this painting is my tribute to his 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.
