Artists
Fiona Millais


* * Bohun Gallery is delighted to confirm a SOLO SHOW of new New Work by Fiona Millais in Autumn 2017. To receive further details, please contact the gallery directly. * *

Fiona Millais has worked as an artist since graduating from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne with a degree in Fine Art in 1984.

Usually, but not exclusively, her paintings are based on landscape or still life, but are often not directly representational. Paintings might be produced on the completion of a journey, either abroad or within the British Isles, and are evolved from memories, drawings and notes done on the spot.

Music and literature sometimes provide additional source material. Fiona collects objects, perhaps while out walking her dog, such as stones, leaves and feathers, which when painted create context, layers of texture, colour and interwoven history.


Much of her work is based on Crosswater, where she lives. The farm and nurseries, the surrounding landscape of gardens, woods and heathland is area both familiar and intimate, wild and remote. Fiona enjoys exploring this variety, which continues to inspire her to broaden and extend her artistic vocabulary. She is intrigued by how landscapes are shaped, by ourselves and our ancestors, leaving traces, marks and echoes.


Fiona often paints and repaints canvasses so that while traces of the original images remain present, the work undergoes a process of metamorphosis.
