FROM WITHIN ABOVE
We are very pleased to present a selection of recent paintings by the amazing Samuel Miller in association with Ninuku Arts, APY Lands, South Australia.
Miller's use of colour and composition are like few others. His paintings are joyful and energetic, but never trite or superficial. You can feel the love for his traditional Country pouring out from the depths of his soul on to the canvas, dot by meticulous dot, as he maps significant land formations in bright colour. These truly gorgeous paintings let us soar high over his landscape!
The jewel-like colours and sparkle lend an exuberant, light atmosphere to his work which belies the true nature of his homeland. Miller's traditional Country is a men's waterhole that is so sacred, its name cannot be spoken or written. Such places are usually associated with men's initiation and Law ceremonies, and almost no information is shared publicly.
Simply knowing that behind these exquisite works lies a profound knowledge - and accepting that we cannot know its depths - is in itself incredibly enriching: the knowledge is Miller's to cherish and protect, and the beauty is ours to admire and be inspired by. We cannot ask for more than that.
