Cathryn Miles is among Atlanta’s most popular painters. Her richly patterned abstract “landscapes” have always been inspired by the primitive energy of nature with all its Romantic associations. Her imagery, influenced by her surroundings, creates a highly personal vocabulary reflecting the colors and patterning of nature—clouds, weather, land. She creates her work by building up rich layers of color and pattern in oils. The resulting compositions are less about specifics and more about the artist’s interpretation of and emotional (and at times political) reaction to representations of nature.
Carpe Diem will be on view in the front gallery at Thomas Deans Fine Art through May 8. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday, 11:00 – 5:00 p.m.
