Lorna Mills





Canadian artist Lorna Mills has actively exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions since the early 1990s, both in Canada and internationally. Her practice has included obsessive Ilfochrome printing, obsessive painting, obsessive super 8 film & video, and obsessive on-line animated GIFs incorporated into restrained off-line installation work.

She has also co-curated monthly group animated GIF projections with Rea McNamara for the “Sheroes” performance series in Toronto, a group GIF projection event “When Analog Was Periodical” in Berlin co- curated with Anthony Antonellis, and a four person GIF installation, “:::Zip The Bright:::” at Trinity Square Video in Toronto, with artists Sara Ludy, Nicolas Sassoon and Rick Silva.

Cold War Splodes is a series of 10 found and altered animated GIFs. They form a free associative narrative around artillery, war machines, warriors, and explosions. Working largely with kinetic mediums, Lorna Mills’ work ranges from purely abstract 3D constructions to the type of disorienting thick-blocked color you see demonstrated here.
