About Me

I'M peggy millar

Sometimes it’s hard to know what to believe.  The media says our dreams will come true only if we consume. Vogue, W, Elle, and the rest say they know what beauty is, but we know that this is not the whole truth. And we feel that beauty and truth are connected, to paraphrase the poet John Keats. 

So I paint what I know. I may not know what it is at first, but painting allows me to become gradually conscious of the beauty that lives in the world and in me, deeper than any trends and technology, deeper than any media programming and shows the strength in the feminine. 

This work is a biography of dance, of friends, and of family and it incorporates gestures in paint, collage, paper, color and pattern, enacting the many surfaces of life and the way they’re enriched with different materials.  And through these layers, the multi-layered consciousness that we all are. 

I believe in an art that is not trying to get anything from you, not trying to convince you of anything or make you think in a certain way. I believe in an art that says Yes to life, including some of its embellishments. And presents my own vision of the truth – its beauty and fear, its love and its pain.
