GREG MILLERBack to Artists
Greg Miller's large abstract paintings and installations continue to explore the contradiction, ambiguity, and truths with our culture. His use of energetic brush strokes, collage, drips, phrases and the peeling back of layers provide a study in the impermanence of the things that surround us. The thin and thick layers of washes and glazes are applied and reworked over time resulting in a sensuous opacity that in recent works completely obliterates the blurred figures and landscapes.
His new work deals with fantasized spaces and walls with a play on surfaces. His interest lies in the ability to balance representation and abstraction. The paintings are finished when he sees an image which reminds or suggests to him "wall paintings."
