Aimee Millward's art practice engages with investigating the relationship between reality and abstraction within painting.

Influence is taken from everyday motifs such as space, landscape, nature and today's culture which are all reduced to their bare essential structures until they are unrecognizable. The mixture of gestural marks, various shapes and non-art materials becomes the starting point to establish a hybridisation of reality and abstraction to create some sort of heterotopia. This uncertain space constructs on going spectacles and experiences in the work. Each mark produces a pictorial language, each mark continually evolves.  

Aimee currently holds a studio at Temple Street Studios, Wolverhampton
