I approach painting as an celebration of the spirit. The solitude of the landscape offers special sanctuary for me to explore subconscious attitudes about the land and my craft. I believe that through a genuinely unselfconscious act of painting, something new and self-revealing will emerge, something honest and natural that will also ultimately reveal an essential quality of the subject.

Jeremiah Miller lives in rural North Carolina in a home that he built himself deep in the woods. The subjects are his paintings are intimate depictions of his environment, the interiors and exteriors of his home and studio and the regional landscape that he loves to explore. His paintings evoke feelings of solitude and silence and tend to dissolve into abstraction.
