The artistic opus of Claire Milner is largely drawn from the artist’s desire to inscribe environmentalist discourse in art… On a similar trail of examining human behaviour in crises, Milner considers topics of identity, gender and displacement. The artist uses her work as a device for social and political debate.
“It’s all about the detail for Claire Milner, the stellar British talent behind the portrait of Marilyn Monroe... Claire’s philosophical approach is revealed in the surprising hidden portrait painted on the reverse that represents the young Norma Jean - a commentary on the life of a celebrity. Her richly diverse sources of inspiration include ancient art, popular culture and Shakespeare. This is reflected in a dynamic adaptability, from a mosaic depicting under-sea volcanoes to iconic portraiture.”
Her works of art are majestic as well as thought-provoking.
