Sarah Gee Miller | High Functioning (New Works in Collage)
Sarah Gee Miller lives and works in Vancouver BC. She works with archival cardstock, often painted in acrylics, to make collages revealing an interest in regularity, equilibrium and the formalities of hard-edged abstraction. The superimposition of vibrant colour and mathematically-derived forms results in what she calls utopian geometry – that is, acknowledging there is rationality and clarity alongside the magical properties of symmetry and beauty.
In this exhibition, Sarah Gee Miller's continuing exploration of high-saturation colour and geometry continues with the addition of topographical elements into her collage work. These unexpected spatial shifts - elevations and depressions made by adding layers of material into the compositions - expands our visual engagement with work.
In the last few years she has participated in several group shows and four solo exhibitions. Her work can be found in corporate and private collections across Canada, in Britain, the United States and Australia and has recently been featured in Juxtapoz Magazine.
