“Reflections is an ongoing series of drawings inspired by a trip to Italy in 2019. Working from reference images of sculptures seen at the Vatican and Florence, these new works are the result of considerable time spent trying to achieve a balance of fine line-work, expressive marks and areas of realistic detail."  

An impromptu day trip to Rome inspired much of the work. A trip where I rushed around on foot to see as much as I could before having to run all the way from the Vatican Museum to Roma Centrale station to catch the last train to Pisa where I was staying. It was manic, and I think that comes across in the work through the frantic mark making of some of the quicker sketches. I've been feeling my way through depicting a figure as opposed to measuring the proportions of a face. It's a more expressive and intuitive approach to my usual work, conscious of the fact that I'm prone to overworking. But the larger drawings are something more laboured that I've sought to resolve more fully. 

The large piece on wooden panel is the culmination of all of the other work, everything else being more developmental in that sense. 

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Reflections. An Exhibition by Ross Miller are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
