Jeanne Miles

(1908-1999)

Miles was an extraordinary woman, who lived her entire life producing and celebrating art. While she became one of the first female members of “the Club”, the regular meetings of the Abstract Expressionists in New York, her work grew increasingly more geometric. An avid scholar of mysticism, Miles’ work seeks to explore the divine and spiritual truth and her mandalas serve as meditations on ritualistic designs. Influenced by Tantric art as well as Islamic and Tibetan work, her pieces draw the viewer in to contemplate the universal mysteries.
