Artist Statement

In the last 5 years, I have lived through changes in the world as I have known it. Changes in the climate, the political landscape, and most of all changes to my health. Because of this, I paint with a sense of urgency and immediacy. Getting whatever it is I feel needs to be expressed on the canvas and in this consistent daily discipline creating what I believe to be some of the best work of my career. As I have done in the past, my paintings celebrate what it means to live in the River City we call Sacramento. Beneath this fragile tree-lined canopy, I hope to convey its subtle beauty and unpretentious charms. – Miles Hermann
