‘Nightingale’ 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.
‘A Thousand Dreams’ depicts a woman’s face, emerging from the darkness to dominate the small, square space of the polaroid. Using a palette of gold leaf and dark, sepia-brown, Millar captures the light and shadow of his subject with incredible dexterity, adding shots of cherry-red to her lips and face for a truly powerful aesthetic.
