The Slow Exhale

Diana Miller

Acrylic on linen


180cm H x 150cm W


Framed in waxed Tasmanian oak

This piece features in Diana Miller’s solo show ‘In the Quiet’ showing at Curatorial+Co. in November 2021.

Says Diana of her exhibition: “Although it may look like my art is just about shapes and colours there is an autobiographical component to it too. I am always documenting my relationship to the environment and my daily experiences. Shape-making is a big part of my practice and making collages and drawings is how I go about creating shapes as my starting point. This process is a playful one, embracing experimentation and failure and allows me to create visual content that can ultimately feed into my paintings. I seem to think in shape and colour and these are the devices of my visual language. My brain seems to like composing and analysing compositions and observing the dialogues going on within.

It is in the quietness of the mornings with only the sound of the ocean, or of my breath that I reconnect to nature and sink into myself. This is the time when I can hear myself think and where I have most clarity.  More and more I have been bringing that quietude back into the studio with me. In place of loud music I’ve been listening to gentle classics or just working in complete silence, shutting out the noise and going into my quiet place to make this body of work.

For me this show has been a way to regain some control and order in a world that now feels very out of whack and fear-infused.”
