Meg Miller’s paintings invite us to partake in an intimate journey from the eye of the bee and the centre of the flower; source of the pollen and the pollinator. She attempts to capture how they view one another, each both taking and receiving in a symbiotic sensual dance. In entering their secret garden, which often entails magnifying the area under discussion Miller defines her own personal language. Her style can be seen as minimal, loose and yet lively. She attempts to capture the essence of her subject and represent it in such a way as to invite the audience to step inside, to view life with a different lens and scale through bursts of vibrant colour and bold form.

"I am a Scottish artist born and based on the Isle of Skye. Working with various disciplines and a variety of materials I select what best fits my ideas at the time and sometimes I just following my natural instincts. Presently my interests are concerned with the interrelationships between several subject matters including my garden and the apiary."

Emerging-artists|Grays Degree Show 2019

Meg Miller presents a reflective collection of works drawing upon her experiences as an apiarist. At the centre of her meditatively lit space is a fully working glass and wooden beehive placed alongside a collection of objects made in collaboration with these bees, subtle celebrations of their vital and intelligent labour.
