Over Sleeping Eyes
FROM ANDREW J MILLAR
Experimentation and variety are the cornerstones of UK based artist Andrew J Millar’s metier. A love of unpredictability led him to begin working with instant film and collage, allowing him to use the natural variation in results to influence each unique artwork. Over the last few years, Millar’s journey has led him to mould and expand his practice from focusing on singular polaroid collages to daring, large scale hand finished editions and unique perspex works – all based on his love for the polaroid format.
His artistic journey began with manipulating singular polaroids, removing parts of the film and coating them with gold or silver leaf, creating elegant unique pieces that despite their modest size, caught the attention of collectors internationally. Since then, experimentation has led Millar to produce large scale screen printed editions, sculptural pieces and elevate his magical, fantasy-like composition to new heights.
