About

In “whatalife”, American Emerging Artist Millie Weeks works in Acrylic, Permanent Marker, Gesso, Foil and Airbush on Canvas, one of her most materially diverse pieces to date. Through this medium, Millie Weeks creates a diverse universe within the piece that is complex with a maximalist nature. The abstract style of the painting further creates a playful and fun nature that translates the process into an overall impressive piece. When discussing her work, Millie Weeks describes “When I paint, I am solely focused on the innate and physical act of painting. Being very hands on with my materials, and releasing any preciousness that may be associated with art, my intention is to let go of any preconceived ideas that I may be overthinking and just let myself make. Utilizing instinctual decision making and quick movements, I navigate the canvas as a space to explore various shapes, colors, and textures. By using loose, fluid, yet strong marks, I fill collage-like compositions, which typically provide for dynamic visual spaces in which the viewer questions what it is they are seeing.  After I am finished painting, I am able to analyze what led to my decisions, and often explore themes of the unconscious, Identity, ego, and cognition. Via rapid movements and visceral choices, I decipher why I choose certain colors or materials, and what leads to these instinctive choices. This determines the titles of the pieces and may inspire further work.” Millie Weeks b. 1996 “Whatalife” Acrylic, Permanent Marker, Gesso, Foil and Airbush on Canvas 48 x 48 inches Created 2019
