On View in Venture Room
March 31 through May 19, 2018
Opening Reception: March 31, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
Danielle Rae Miller's works are dense compositions of plant, animal, and insect life realistically drawn with fine line ink on both sides of translucent vellum to create transparency, depth, and interaction between elements. Miller uses images with pre-attached meanings in our human mythologies—snakes, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, beetles, roses, sunflowers, the human heart, ribcage, and pelvis—to engage an emotional response in viewers, to gently nudge individual and cultural
memories, and hint at broader connections between all forms of life on this planet.
