Bio

Leanne C. Miller was born in Phoenix AZ, and relocated to California to attend San Francisco Art Institute, graduating in 2005. She resided in San Francisco until 2012. While living there, she continued making and showing her work in California and New York, as well as curating, and has been commissioned to create murals throughout San Francisco and Arizona. She decided to leave her adopted home and return to the desert to work toward an MFA at the University of Arizona, Tucson, graduating in 2015. Currently she is teaching painting and drawing as adjunct instructor at the U of A, while also making and showing her work and attending various artists residencies. You can see more of her work and stay up to date at www.leannecmiller.com.

My work is an amalgamation of textures, colors, spray paint and acrylic, which are based on my interest in materials and patterns.  I mix unexpected combinations of color and line to create a multilayered surface. I am always considering color theory and am inspired by textile patterns. The sedimentary layers of the earth are something I contemplate as I paint layer over layer on the wood panels, building up memory over time.  One of the marks I use is spray paint in a graffiti-esque style, which mimics tagging on a wall. The quiet conversation that goes on in the streets of the urban environment are what interest me in that visual culture. People communicate silently with illegal notes, which are passed from one to the other on the walls of a city in a call and response. That silent, visual background noise is a mysterious, subversive communication between strangers. I think of how that communication is not unlike a piece of art in a gallery or museum, reflecting what goes on between viewer and artist. As well as the act of painting the walls of a gallery between shows is like the buffing of the city walls as one tag is erased, inevitably to be replaced by the next.
