Emerging Artists: Hilton Miller

"Emerging Artists" … a new take on emerging!!!

At The Dock in Carrick on Shannon

My father, Hilton Miller (www.hiltonmiller.com), was  a remarkable but hermetic painter who exhibited just once in 2011 before he died in 2012 after more than 40 years painting. Originally a theoretical mathematician his work was obsessed with colour relationships, and while it hangs on an armature of landscape painting, they are intense experiments with colour. In this show, Alice Lyons has curated a selection of his Irish and French landscapes alongside his intense colour diagrams and notations.
