Elizabeth Miller-Vermeulen

The South African born artist, Elizabeth Miller-Vermeulen is established as an artist and independent curator.                                                                           

In her own art, Elizabeth`s preferred subjects vary from portraits to landscapes. Mostly focussing on mood studies, the artist relies on her imagination, rather than existing locations for her textured and layered landscapes. Her portraits reflect on the inner worlds of the unknown, as well as the outer features of strangely familiar faces. Viewers often remark on recognition or resemblance, relating to strange readings as captured by the artist. Preferred mediums are acrylic on board and graphite or mixed media on paper.

Elizabeth studied art at university level and worked as a book designer at Human & Rousseau publishers during her early career. She also worked as an illustrator and private art lecturer. She has been involved in managing various community and commercial art galleries.

Elizabeth Miller-Vermeulen has curated numerous exhibitions, the most recent being the five month long  Stellenbosch University Centenary Forward? Forward! Forward... art exhibition (Dec. 2018 -April 2019), co-curated with Ulrich Wolff, at the Stellenbosch University Museum.  She was also the curator for the Landbouweekblad  Centenary  front cover exhibition with Heléne Booyens (exhibition coordinater). This 2019 exhibition was shown at Woordfees (Adam Small foyer), KKNK, Suidoosterfees and at Media 24.

The artist has had five solo exhibitions and has participated in more than fifty group exhibitions.  Her work is represented in local and international private collections.

She currently works from her studio outside Durbanville in the Cape.
