ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Danielle Rae Miller’s works are dense compositions of plant, animal and insect life realistically drawn with fine line ink on both sides of translucent vellum to create transparency, depth and interaction between elements. Miller uses images with pre-attached meanings in our human mythologies—snakes, bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, beetles, roses, sunflowers, the human heart, ribcage and pelvis—to engage an emotional response in viewers, to gently nudge individual and cultural memories, and hint at broader connections between all forms of life on this planet.
