DECONSTRUCTING ALLUSION

The passage of time as well as the impermanence and transitory nature of collective memory are both felt in the work of Greg Miller, who constructs as well as deconstructs our perception of social history through the ephemera of the golden age of the print media. JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work in which Miller layers and reconstructs this imagery of mid-century American consciousness in clever, incongruous juxtapositions that are a life-like, contemporary approach to Pop. 

Known for his cheekily playful and vividly rendered visual collages, Miller draws on his urban Californian roots, engaging with the ambiguity in the American landscape. In the works presented Miller explores the connection between advertising, urban environment, and our social history. Referencing classic typefaces and color palettes, the images echo both the look and feel of print advertisements. Miller achieves this impression by fastidiously and painstakingly re-creating the look of age, grit, and time through the use of paint, collage paper and resin on canvas, painting each visual element by hand.  Miller’s work resonates on both visual as well as linguistic levels through the dialogue afforded by their association. Working with the imagery of the visual detritus in all of its faded glory, Miller preserves for us the ephemeral beauty of the printed material. 

GREG MILLER (b. 1951, Sacramento, California) spends him time between New York, NY and Los Angeles, CA. His work has been exhibited internationally and is featured in numerous private and museum collections.

 

Greg Miller’s work will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you're sure to find the right artistic expression!
