Brittany J. Miller
In my work, plant fragments act as bodies: interconnected, fragile, and holy beings moving through difficult worlds toward each other. Roots formed in gold-wrapped silk, crystallized copper, and wax become intertwined inside of landscapes built out of tar, mosquito netting, and leather. Ferns, roots, and onion bulbs float, become buried, and are resurrected as glowing, gold silhouettes and ghostly cyanotype shadows. I seek to create quietly-luminous art objects that belong in sacred spaces, objects meant to be blanketed in prayer.
