Until January 28, 2022, Quad City Arts presents “Uncommon Ground”, paintings by Elaine Miller. The public is invited to attend the closing reception on January 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. where the artist will be present, and refreshments will be served.
Elaine Miller, of Chicago, features four large-scale paintings depicting the four seasons as well as smaller canvases. Miller says, “This work is my life’s work. It is a tribute to the magnificence of nature and a lament for its decimation. In these paintings, I work to convey the many layers of reality through elements of the landscape genre. Sometimes the landscape is a record of humanity’s emotions and relationships, a witness to the great circle of seasons which is a continual part of our private triumphs and losses. Many times the paintings are a documentation of the timeless mysteries of nature and its continuous downward spiral. As we move towards uncertain prospects together, it is the hope and purpose of my practice to work towards creative solutions for a regenerative and ethical future, a hope that sustains my work and my life.
