Karen Mills is a Darwin-based artist who is a descendant of the Balanggarra people, of the Oombulgurri and Forrest River Aboriginal reserve, in the East Kimberley, Western Australia.
Her practice investigates themes of identity and memory, and often connection and disconnection with her Aboriginal heritage. Her abstract paintings are generally landscape-based, inspired by her experience and memory of country. These works capture a sense of the rich history and survival of Aboriginal culture hidden beneath layers of sediment.
Karen Mills' artwork has been featured in exhibitions nationally and internationally and is held in the permanent collections of the National Gallery of Australia and the Parliament House Art Collection, as well as private collections in Australia and internationally.
