Glenn Miller is a landscape and figurative artist whose creative practice consists of oil painting,
photo-manipulation based digital art and video.


He was born in country Queensland, Australia and has participated in group and solo shows in
Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, New York, and Paris. His works are held in private,
public and corporate art collections in Australia and overseas, including Perpetual Trustees,
Sydney; a large canvas titled 'Christmas Eve', now held in a private collection in Melbourne,
formerly hung at the Crown Casino.


He began his art studies under Frank De Silva at the Royal Queensland Art Society in Brisbane,
1980. He attended the Queensland College of Art, 1981-82, with the acclaimed colourist, John
Rigby, being among his tutors.


On leaving art college, he worked for many years as a graphic artist in the printing industry. He
was a supporter of and did volunteer illustration and graphic artwork for the Antarctic Protection
Society.


In 1994, he met the New York artist and gallery director, Tim Slowinski, who arranged his first
solo exhibition.


His first Australian solo exhibition was at Soho Galleries, Sydney in 1996. He exhibited there on a
regular basis over the following years.


He was a finalist in the Glover Prize in 2012, one of Australia's most significant awards for
landscape painting. He was a semi-finalist in the 2013 and 2015 Doug Moran National Portrait
Prizes.


In 2015, his video art submissions were included in both the Seattle Erotic Art Festival and the
Rochester Erotic Arts Digital Show.


Glenn now paints in solitude at his Gympie studio, preferring to work in oils on Belgian linen. In
recent years his interest has gradually shifted from the landscape to the female nude and
portraiture.


Artist Statement
My art is inspired first and foremost by what I see, feel and experience. I explore the female form,
painting in a style that is free and intuitive. Backgrounds are only important as blank backdrops,
allowing the focus of attention to remain fixed on the nude. Colour is used to embellish, in the
sense of adding to the aesthetic or emotional density of the composition.
