This small display of works by Godfrey Miller come from the Estate of a perceptive New South Wales collector and was assembled between 2004 and 2015 (all from this gallery and most from the Estate of John Henshaw). All the oils are typical of the works that were still in progress at the time of the artist’s death, each offering an insight into the direction he seemingly had in mind.
Miller could work for years on a canvas which he built up by slow and steady accretion. As an artist primarily focused on structure, these works show four differing approaches: they vary from a plethora of carefully calculated small marks (no. 4) to a swift and intuitive scribble of bolder forms which, in this case, give a clear idea of the arches he saw appearing between trees (no. 6).
The gallery is operating by appointment and adhering to COVID-19 social distancing measures.
