Artist’s Statement

​

"I am a native Cape Codder, a homesteader, a people watcher, and a mischief maker.  I collect socks and turn them into creatures.  I am an avid appreciator of music, and a lover of animals.  My food of choice is peach-blueberry pie, preferably prepared in a cast iron skillet, and my beverage of choice is a glass of Basil Hayden bourbon, rocks on the side."

-Abby Miner

Biography

​

Abby Miner's work offers an exploration of the juxtaposition between movement and stillness.  The structure and form in Miner's portrayal of her subjects contrast with the artist’s application of textures and paint in many layers of gestural and linear abstract strokes.  

​

The subjects Miner paints include her series of ravens and crows, other animals of flight, and the figure.  Miner’s use of dramatic changes in value from black to white along with primary and tonal colors, make abstract compositions of both representational and psychological observation.

​

Miner works mainly in oil, and also with mixed media.   Acrylic and house paints will often find their way into her work.  If she cannot find her brushes, she will use whatever is laying around, being very resourceful and feeling that the key is to create, however it comes to pass.
