Notes


About

Ever since Catriona Millar’s 2005 Degree Show at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen sold out within hours, her unique and highly distinctive figurative oil paintings have captivated and delighted art collectors. The Sunday Herald newspaper ranks Catriona Millar in the top five most collectable Scottish artists and her work is admired and collected throughout Europe, the Far East, Australia and America. Catriona Millar’s paintings speak a universal language to all ages and many schools and colleges around the world have studied her work. Working with a palette knife, Catriona Millar applies thick layers of paint to the canvas creating a surface that draws viewers further into the piece, imbuing her subjects with a tactile quality that seems to further humanise these stylised individuals. Colourful and beguiling, her work is about the connective tissue that defines us, from the stories we tell to the worlds we imagine.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork

I work with a palette knife so the scale of these paintings is always a challenge but it encourages me to make fresh decisions about shape and personality. I'm always trying to capture that elusive human element and I hope I have done that in these works, except in the portrait of Sally who has her very own special character.
