Nick Miller (b 1962, London) moved to Ireland in 1984 and now lives and works in Co Sligo. He was elected to Aosdána in 2001.
Miller has pursued different genres of representation and modes of working that allow direct engagement with his subjects: portraits, landscape or object. Much of his work focuses on the experience of “meeting” and in recent years has included the use of film to observe and record encounter.
The Poetry project commission is a short time lapse film recording the artist’s painted meeting with the text of John F Deane’s poem “The Colours”. It is his second collaboration in film with the musician Steve Wickham.
