Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Canvas.

This piece reflects both the artist's utopia and her reality; it is concerned with female relationships and bodies, as well as the regenerative quality of plants and leisure. The plant is in the artist's collection and was painted directly from life. The white plant pot is meant to feel like a hand-painted piece of pottery, while the representation of the plant exaggerates the rippling effect of its leaves viewed in person. One of these leaves reaches for what looks like a window. The scene on the pot of two women at leisure was inspired by Clara Tice, a controversial illustrator from the early 1900s (see attachment). She drew a lot of playful, adventurous, and occasionally erotic female portraits. The artist notes that she seemed to only represent white women, though. Miller's piece reflects a commitment to intersectional feminism.
