“With so much change in the world at the moment, there’s a natural desire to hanker back to simpler times when the family provided constancy and certainty.
For so many of us growing up in the baby boomer years, the family was a fairly straightforward unit, but no matter the make up of the family (and the extended family) - memories of the family can provide happy, nostalgic reminiscences that help us navigate the world today
Some of my happiest times as a child, would be when we enjoyed a rare day out. In this work I've even included the pet cat, though I doubt the cat (or the dog) joined us on excursions.”
Alexander Millar’s paintings manage to trigger memories of dads, mams, grandads, grans, aunties, uncles and old neighbours. His work allows the viewer to tap into an emotional well that evokes memories of a parent or grandparent, almost smelling the damp wool and cigarette smoke of the working man (and woman).
He captures moments in time when ‘gadgies’ are pushing bikes uphill, gossiping on street corners, sauntering along canal paths or heading through factory gates.
