Artist of the moment……..Florence Miller Pierce

 

 

Florence Miller Pierce was an American painter renown for her abstract style and use of innovative materials. Florence Melva Miller was born in the year 1918. She was one of few married women to keep her maiden name. She took the last name of Pierce only after her husband had passed away.

As a teenager Pierce studied with an artist who was very focused on Modernism, Mary Ashton. Later she would attended the Corcoran School of Art located in Washington, D.C.

The artist was one of the first to incorporate the use of resin in her art. She was always experimenting with new materials and produced works that included styrofoam, balsa wood, fiberglass, and cement.

Florence Miller was one of the two women artists (Agnes Pelton was the other) who were part of the Trancendentalist Painting Group based out of Taos, New Mexico.

Florence Miller Pierce passed away in 2007.
