New Blood Art Statement

’My ideas could be described as my pollen, I transform them into something more refined, my honey…’ Gray’s School of Art graduate, Meg Miller, describes the environmental roots of her works which are said to ’traverse many fine art forms…’
 
Immersing herself in research, Miller (beekeeper and artist) dedicates herself to extricating natural and archival resources. With these materials she creates artwork of peculiar beauty and keen intellect. For example, the enchanting piece ’Birth Control III, ’ which uses beeswax and metal, gifts us with a profusion of rich colours: mustards, lemons, honeys, ambers, and taupe.

Artist Statement

Meg is a Scottish artist based on the Isle of Skye working primarily in research-led, multi-disciplinary projects. Materials she utilises to execute her ideas she calls her collaborators, normally they have symbolic, cultural and historical meanings. Using fine art processes and often unusual materials to explore our relationship to the natural world and observe its subtle rhythms, her intention has been to examine the idea that there exists an inherent intelligence within nature. Research stems from a deep curiosity for the ancient wisdom of both East and West, travelling, beekeeping and Meg’s innate connection to the Western Isles of Scotland.

 

'Comparable to a honeybee collecting vital essences from different flora, I gather ideas from philosophical, mystical and artistic disciplines alongside life experiences. My ideas could be described as my pollen, I transform them into something more refined, my honey'.
