John Millei

I've been waiting...waiting...and, you guessed it, waiting for another show by the artist John Millei. See his work here and marvel at his impeccable ability in a staggering range of painting possibilities. The group that this image comes from reminds me of pared back Morandis. Figures (bottles?), directly rendered in beautiful clean colours, rise from the picture plane as if taking a bow on stage.

Dear Undercover Painter, thanks for your supportive comments. Isn't Fairweather the greatest. Shame the rest of the world doesn't know about him. Where would we be without blogs like the Steven Alexander Journal and utubes like James Kalm. It is a window to a world far away. Keep painting...

You're more than welcome - as I said, I do really like your work especially because of the strong drawing elements you employ. Yes, the WWW is amazing for revealing so much great and accomplished art and artists - I wouldn't want it any other way! I have a plan to go to NYC in the near future but sometimes I feel I go everyday thanks to JK ;)
