"Essentially, I make portraits of circumstance. The work is aimed at using materials in a non conventional way in order to blur lines between painting and sculpture. All of the work from the last 12-24 months follows the same method. I carry a small notebook with me every where I go. Whenever I have an idea or hear something interesting/ hilarious/ upsetting/ etc - I write the quote down in the aforementioned book. I then use various materials to create a visual representation of these phrases. I see the works as 'portraits of circumstance' - both the situational honesty from where I've drawn the original content, and the shifted context once these phrases are placed in a fine art context. There are also aesthetic and material nods to artists and artworks that I feel embody the sentiments I've chosen to portray." - Easton
"Miller's practice is heavily invested in the intersection between the individual and the communal. A range of found and chosen materials are used to make work that cross-pollinates between sculpture and painting with humor and intelligence. Relying on blocks of visual information the works celebrate the battle between candor and an observed restraint. This combination can be heavily symbolic but also delicately paired with a more acute sensibility to paint and its role in the work. Familiar materials serve as a structure to establish a relatable conversation between the artist and the world he tries to acknowledge in a meaningful way. This continual exploration into the hybrid of mediums allows for an active and at times odd blend of object and illusion." - M.G.
