Dealing intimately with personal subject matter, Jennifer Mills has a lot to paint about. A mother, and artist, Mills finds significance in the insignificant, and exploits understatement rather than drama. Inspired by Film Noir and silent film, her spaces are paranoid and akward, yet retain a sensitivity to innuendo and subtelty. Her subjects are found within hazy spectrums of dark and light that bridge realms between the practical and metaphorical.

When finished, her paintings exist entirely separate from her person. As we consider them, we embark on a meaningful search for abstraction between space, presence, and subliminal suggestions of eyes and figures. Mills remains looking for a language that works for her, and allows her to expound upon delicate life experiences.
