The art of dance inspired this painting. I wanted to incorporate the emotion of dance into my abstract expressionist color series. My goal is to portray the energy of the dancer, using the abstract colors to symbolize the music.
I enjoy creating abstract, botanical and landscape images using various mediums and techniques. I'm always changing mediums and sometimes the subject matter. Each medium gives me the opportunity to experiment with light, color and line variations. My abstract paintings are inspired by nature's endless arrangements of line, color, forms found in gardens, landscapes, water scenery, as well as the Wide Field Camera images of galaxies. Some observers claim to see different forms or images in these paintings that may not be intentionally created. My 2014 abstract series was inspired by the Tulip Festival and the beautiful gardens in eastern Canada.Kerry Milligan graduated from the University of Alberta with a Bachelor of Arts degree (Sociology), later completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Visual Communications Design.Gallery Representation/Group Exhibitions at:Kevin Dodds Gallery & Studio, Ottawa, OntarioQuest Art Gallery, Midland, OntarioOttawa Art Gallery (Art Rental and Sales)Profiles Public Art Gallery, St. Albert, AlbertaSolaris Gallery, Califon, New JerseyJohnson Gallery, Edmonton, Alberta
