Catalogue Note

Still life is at the heart of Lisa Milroy's paintings. In the 1980s her paintings were depictions of ordinary objects such as records, light bulbs, shoes, books, clothes, stamps and Japanese prints, composed in either a grid or a scatter against an off-white ground. In the early 1990's Milroy's approach to still life painting shifted. Instead of depicting objects isolated against a neutral ground, she began to paint them within settings. The imagery expanded to exclude landscapes, architecture and people. As the range of imagery grew, her painting style diversified. By continually experimenting with fast and slow applications of paint, Milroy's painterly innovations have allowed her to achieve within her paintings a wide range of moods and atmospheres. For the past few years Milroy's focus has been on large-scale paintings that break away from painting as a window on the world to painting as an all-encompassing experience. All such environmental paintings reflect Milroy's ongoing fascination with the relation between stillness and movement, and how thought and feeling shape action.

Lisa Milroy has been advisor at the Rijksakademie for more than ten years.
