‘Echo’ is a spray paint on polaroid print by contemporary collage artist Andrew Millar. Finished with hand-applied, 24ct gold leaf, the print if from a limited edition of 100 and is signed and numbered by the artist.
Andrew Millar works with a range of media to produce a beautiful collage aesthetic. Layering gold and silver leaf over instant film, Millar’s pieces are soft and delicate, suffused with an intangible, haunting quality and a vintage feel of times past.
‘Echo’ depicts the head and shoulders of a woman, set against a gold leaf background. With ghostly sensitivity, Millar has left the figure smudged and blurry, using soft, sepia-brown against the gold, to capture the light and shadow of his subject with incredible dexterity, producing a beautiful sense of transience and ephemerality.
