Anna Miller’s Inner Light: In a Time of Pandemic, is a celebration of the human spirit through abstraction. Filled with bright colors and energized forms, this group of paintings represents an exploration of the artist’s personal development in the midst of struggle. Inspired by the natural beauty of St. Johns County, Miller’s series interprets these surroundings through the poetic and metaphorical expression of semi-abstract imagery. Sub-tropical flowers and plants, stormy skies, and the drama and power of the ocean and sun inform the artist’s visual language consisting of geometric shapes, refracted light patterns, and dynamic lines. Exhibition July 2 to August 13, 2021 at the Lightner Museum, located at 75 King St. in historic downtown, St Augustine, FL
