Mills paints curious landscapes that encompass lost figures and odd hidden characters moving through the undergrowth. An understanding of the paint is conveyed in Mills painterly language, creating a sense of mystery. The use of washes and glazes followed by sticky layers are built into abstract night-time scenes. Dark shadows and traces of light that edge into the painting from a distance. These backgrounds are accentuated by protruding lines which form botanical towers creating pattern that provides the viewer with a kaleidoscope of different views.
