CHAOS, ENERGY, CALM
This collection is one of the first I produced since I started painting after over 15 years of not picking up a paintbrush. It was a huge therapy for me.
These works are about being spontaneous and freeing the mind in the process. About paint movement and the unknown. About allowing the paint to flow and take a life of its own. Almost 'Accidental'. About investigation and behaviours.
Not one piece defines anything in particular; it's not about the finished piece but the process of doing it, using the whole body and the inspiration to ‘let go’.
"Millsy's work has the sense of contained chaos; almost Galactic emotion somehow condensed into a 'polaroid' of time. However the use of vivid colour and clever illusion of flow and movement against the chaos conveys a more harmonious relationship with the self. She fills the canvas with the wild abstract and primary coloured urgency perhaps indicating a need for control and containment".
