I love art that makes you think, and I can’t stop thinking when looking at the work of South African artist Karin Miller.  Her mixed media pieces transport us to a different reality; they enlightens us, and provoke us to consider concepts from new angles.

Pieces like “Adam and Eve” and “Friends of Mary” (above) play on the Renaissance-era depictions of biblical motifs, presenting them from an African perspective.

Looking at her Presently Tense series immediately brings to mind questions on colonization and its role in the development of identity in present-day Africa.

And “The Sun Never Sets on The Empire” invites us to look specifically at the impact of British colonization in Africa.

Beyond the many social questions present in Miller’s work, the artist also presents us with her fascinating take on patterns.  She explores her love of oversized patterns in the Wallpaper Series with pieces like “Julia Wallpaper” above.

For more of Miller’s  truly unique work I invite you to view her portfolio.  It is guaranteed to excite your mind as well as your eye.  Karin Miller >
