Bridgette Guerzon Mills

I am drawn to the inherent beauty and spirit of the natural world, and my artwork is a personal dialogue that reaches into the stillness of that spirit.  Through both imagery and medium, I create organic pieces that speak to the cycles of life, growth and decay, memory and the passage of time.

My mixed media paintings incorporate moments captured by my original photographs with the richness of paint and a variety of media, creating a bridge between two worlds - the real and the reconstructed.  I lay down layers of paint and pieces of photo transfers, papers, fibers, wood and metal to create depth in both form and meaning. The canvas becomes a multilayered surface that speaks to both the visual and tactile senses. This integration of diverse layers creates an intimate connection that invites exploration.

The health of our planet and the destruction of our natural resources are issues that I am very concerned about. My work reflects an ongoing dialogue with the natural world and my interactions with it.

My artwork aims to reveal the beautiful melancholy and the fragile imperfection of the life around and within.
