MAGGY MILNER Statement 2018
Since 1990 Maggy Milner has worked and exhibited as a photographer within a contemporary art context. Always experimental and using different subject matter, different techniques and aware that photographic ‘reality’ can often be purposely misleading, she has explored the interface between photographic ‘reality’ and the artifice of staged still life and photomontage.
My work ranges from straight recordings to manipulated
She is fascinated by contradiction, disparity, eccentricity and the whimsical elements of our contemporary world. Her work is often issue based but with ambiguous, multilayered readings.
Solo exhibitions from 1995 include The Special Photographer's Gallery, London; Coningsby Gallery, London; Lan Kwai Fong Gallery in Hong Kong; Djanogly, Nottingham; mac Birmingham; Derby Museum and Art Gallery; Castle Gallery, Nottingham; Pickford’s House, Derby and The Workhouse, Southwell.
