Staring at the Sun, 2017, Mixed media on canvas, 320mm (h) x 290mm (w).
Adrienne Millwood graduated with an Honours degree (first class) in Fine Arts from The University of Canterbury in 2012. Focusing on ideas around time and consciousness through the intersection between different mediums, primarily photography and painting, Millwood is the winner of a number of awards including the Canterbury Arts & Heritage Trust Travel Award for 2014-15 and the University of Canterbury Ethel Susan Jones Fine Arts Travelling Scholarship in 2014 and 2015.
She has exhibited in New Zealand, Australia and Japan, with her work held in private and public collections, including the University of Canterbury and James Wallace Trust Collection. Recent exhibitions include Making Space at CoCA in Christchurch and Mayfield Residence at the Ashburton Art Gallery both with The Social Collective. She relocated to Wellington in 2016.
These paintings continue to explore the use of collage and mixed media in my work and demonstrate recent experimentation with magazine pages. Time and chance play an important role in this process.
