Nancy Miller is a painter and printmaker who lives and works in New York City. She graduated from Barnard College, studied art at the Art Students League and Provincetown Workshop, and received an MFA in Printmaking from the City College of New York. Nancy S. Miller’s expressionist images incorporate traditional landscape and figurative painting, held together by elements of historical iconography. The viewer can identify with familiar objects while being confronted with images from less familiar cultures.

In “Likewise Ladies,” Ms. Miller bypasses abstraction to create an autobiographical connection. Images of women’s dresses are fabricated out of decorative wrapping paper, tissue paper, and scraps of “found” paper. The collages hang on unstretched canvas, easily transported, ready to be rolled and unrolled. Because the dresses lack heads and faces, they remain anonymous, yet linked to a lush and sometimes-ominous imaginary landscapes composed of the artist’s torn prints and drawings. Miller cannibalizes her own work to make these pieces, overlapping layers of landscape drawings or torn prints to embed the truncated figures in a field of landscape and flowers. The choice of subject matter is not a retreat into literalism but an advance into a new synthesis, incorporating elements of the artist’s experience in each image as a personal commentary.

Ms. Miller has exhibited in many one- and two-person shows at prestigious galleries and museums throughout New York City, Boston, and Connecticut. She has also exhibited in group venues in numerous cities such as New York, East Hampton, Southampton, Ft. Lauderdale, Tallahasse, Los Angeles, Provincetown, and Palm Springs.

Miller’s collectors include Bankers Trust, Cellular One, Citibank, Computer Partners, Daiwa American Securities, Equitable, General Instruments, John Hancock, IBM, Irving Trust, Manufacturer's Hanover, Morgan Stanley, National Bank of Canada, Pfizer, Reader’s Digest, South East Bank, Miami, Southampton Hospital, Zale Corp, and the Zimmerli Art Museum of Rutgers University.

She has taught art at the City College of New York, French Woods Festival, and workshops at Queens College/CUNY.
