Critical Review

He appropriates both the design as well as their rugged, second-hand look through making his original paintings over high resolution digital photographs, hijacking the design with his own clever, sardonic titles that often deal with heavy topics and formulate social critique. Thus, Miller explores the complex relationship between text and image, and reality and representation through the process of quasi “producing” meaning. As his main artistic influences, Miller cites Mark Rothko, saying that the Penguin series remind him of the Colour Field paintings in their sophisticated use of colour. Other artists Miller’s practice is informed by are Anselm Kiefer, Ed Ruscha and Robert Rauschenberg, as well as seminal authors Ernest Hemingway and Edgar Allan Poe.
