H. WARD MILES: WILD

JANUARY 4 – 28, 2019

H. Ward Miles strongly feels that her work has an important and necessary dual meaning.  There is the personal and there is the political. She creates abstract work addressing a variety of topics both comfortable (family, love, relationships, parenthood, nature) and uncomfortable (social injustice, racial inequality, political differences, environmental destruction, war, sexism and fear) and seeks to represent the harsher aspects of life in addition to the complicated, but often universal beauty found in daily life throughout the world.  Her paintings, often described as maps of her memories, give her audience a sense of great joy and happiness, but maintain enough of an edge to provide contrast and interest.
