Verity Millest


My work features the figure, which varies in scale, travelling through a variety of landscapes searching for something unknown.

These scenes are depicted through drawing, which incorporates areas of intense detail alongside contrasting abstract and atmospheric mark making.

The landscapes are highly edited and composed, utilising a monochrome palette referencing early cinematography, which has influenced my practice.

By varying how much is disclosed or absent from the landscape my work embodies a sense of uncertainty of what is real and what is fabrication.

The drawings represent the ever-changing boundaries and limitations of our place in the world.
