About

Jane Millican Exercise 2009 Signed on Reverse Pencil on Paper 16 1/2 x 21 1/8 inches At first glance, the work of London-based artist, Jane Millican, appears to be quickly executed gestural oil painting. Upon closer inspection, the broad brushstrokes and thickly applied paint reveal themselves to be very fine pencil drawings. Each variation in the brushstrokes; each swirling, globby mixture of paint; even occasional isolated drips; are all meticulously drawn in pencil by the talented hand of Ms. Millican, achieving an almost sculptural sense of depth. These illusory drawings are mesmerizing, emanating the immense skill of the artist, as well as her sense of humor and irony. Capturing the spontaneous feeling of gestural oil painting in slowly-crafted pencil drawings, involves a labor intensive process that took years of study and experimentation to perfect. Ms. Millican’s exhibition record includes galleries in London, Paris, Barcelona and New York, as well as being a contributor to Kenneth Paul Lesko Gallery’s annual international exhibitions of cinema inspired artwork.
