‘Frozen By the Sight’ 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.
‘Frozen By the Sight’ depicts the silhouette of a figure in profile, peering up towards a shoal of hammerhead-sharks. Using a palette of gold leaf and inky-black, graduating, in places, to soft-grey, Millar captures the light and shadow of his subject with incredible dexterity, creating a bold, striking composition for a truly powerful piece of contemporary print work.
