When the Moon Sings is a polaroid collage by celebrated contemporary artist, Andrew Millar. To create the piece, Millar uses a combination of instant film and hand-applied platinum leaf to create a unique aesthetic, with no two pieces the same.
The photographs are positioned to both imply a traditional portrait, and to give the impression of a reflection, resulting in a haunting mixture of fantasy and reality rich in unexpected detail.
Miller’s art combines Polaroid photographs with vintage imagery, paint and gold and silver leaf to create delicate collages depicting women, captured in some kind of metamorphosis. His surreal images, which are an evocative mixture of fantasy and reality, are a celebration of female individuality and strength.
Each of Millar’s limited edition of 40 is presented within its own window display mount. It is signed and numbered by the artist.

About the artist
Andrew Millar is one of the most collected young contemporary artists in the UK. Represented by a diverse host of galleries, Millar has had solo exhibitions in Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin, Barcelona, New York and London. Millar’s work can be found in the permanent collection at The Saatchi Gallery, London, and in private homes all over Europe, North America and the Far East.
A pioneer of process, Millar has spent years developing his trademark technique. Using a distinctive combination of collage, Polaroid instant film and precious metal leaf, he weaves his elegant compositions like a tapestry, treading a haunting line between reality and fantasy. Each component of the collage has been plucked from a variety of vintage sources. Surrounded by music in the studio, Millar works instinctively - interlacing the elements to create his surreal, duo-chromatic portraits.
Traditional print and photography processes fascinate Millar. He never ceases to explore the manipulative potential of this light-sensitive medium. Always favouring the angibility of analog over digital immediacy. No two pieces in the edition can ever be the same. Each print is developed, treated and gilded by hand and sometimes accented with acrylic, ink and spray paint. But far more meaningful than the construction is the story Millar tells. Through the timeless subject of the female portrait, he creates connections. From an incandescent universe, each soul sings to the viewer, calling us in to their dystopian world. Awakening a part of ourselves - if we dare to dream.
