Perrin Millard has an interest in multi-media including lead-lighting, sculpture, jewelry making, printing, drawing and painting. With a focus on the natural world, Perrin combines historical art techniques with contemporary art methodologies, collapsing boundaries between disciplines through expanded painting practices.
 

Artist Statement

Influenced by the desire to create work that evokes memory, emotion, and physical responses through the familiarity we have with our natural world, Perrin uses historical art as a road map, through which to view the changing face of nature. Through centuries of depictions we can observe the changes in our world as well as the paradoxical elements within nature, the sky falls into this category – irrespective of time, it inherently remains unchanged by the passage of time, yet is constantly changing. Through Perrin's work there is a recognition that the natural world’s aesthetics, power, and capacity remains beyond our authority and it is through the familiarity we have with our natural world that she addresses the collapsing of time, space, natural forces, and our place in the world. The use of expanded painting practices provides a conduit between the viewer and the work employed to elevate feeling above seeing.
