FOR artist Lydia Miller painting is all about colour.
Miller was born in the Ukraine and spent her early childhood in post-war Germany. She immigrated to Australia in the 1950s.
In childhood she “vividly remembers most of her early years by herself, drawing on scraps of paper, book covers and walls with whatever she could get her hands on”.
The abstract expressionist painters are a major influence in Miller’s work.
“German expressionists I like. I have an affinity for that,” Miller said.
“I think it’s the colour, the use of colour and emotional, gestural.
