From my review of an exhibit of Julie Miller’s drawings:
Steven Zevitas Gallery is also focusing on abstraction with a show of Julie Miller’s new, brightly hued pen drawings. This Bostonian fills sheets of paper with zillions of teensy fine-line circles. Her similar drawings in DeCordova's "Big Bang" exhibition suggested microscopic views of skin or circulating blood cells. The works here feel more like straight-up abstractions focused on a single color or a few similar hues. “o (18)” features purple and blue stripes; “o (19)” is a slippery field of red and orange circles that seem to shift and subtly throb. Sometimes they bring to mind dotted color-blindness test charts.Read the rest here.
