Critical Review

Hate’s Outta Date! features the trademark Penguin logo. Miller’s use of a bright mustard-yellow gives his invented title a more light-hearted, positive. Through working with layers of paint on the original cover’s high-resolution digital photograph, the resulting painting mimics the rugged look of a used book, as seen transferred onto this print.

In this exploration of text, image and form, Miller draws on a range of artistic influences from Abstract Expressionism, Colour Field and Pop Art movements, especially Master Colourist Mark Rothko. The message of this print, Hate’s Outta Date! strikes as especially powerful in that the universality of its meaning is cleverly reiterated by that of its context in the form of the widely known and loved Penguin classics.
