ADELE MILLS earned her MFA from CalArts in 2003 and was a research scholar at UCLA’s Center for the Study of Women from 2005 to 2007. Over the last decade she has honed a technique of combining photography, painting and digital rendering to produce abstract and figurative work with a structural layering, where one image is viewed through the transparency of a second image. The signature gap between the layers in her work creates a displacement of colors, shape and composition and produces doublings, fadings and seeming movement, as aspects of the image are activated through the shifting perspective of the viewer. The artist lives and works in Los Angeles.
PETER ALEXANDER received his MFA from the University of California in 1966.
