The Dialect Series

Featured work by Vancouver artists Sarah Gee Miller

On display in Toronto June 15th to 29th.

This sequence of six paintings was made differently from my usual process, which is a careful charting of shapes and colour on a computer until a composition feels right. The majority of thinking takes place long before paint is swashed across the panel. In this series, thought and action are simultaneous, no pre-planning took place. Instead, as I worked, I thought of a conversation between a group of people who do not entirely understand one another, who are prone to miscues and errors as they construct a dialogue. It’s effective sometimes, but then again the gaps and shadows lead to all kinds of interpretation, and it’s in this gray area of guesswork and, I hope, a natural inclination toward kindness, where these paintings live.
