DAN MILLER'S (USA, b. 1961) artwork reflects his perceptions. Letters and words are repeatedly overdrawn, often creating ink layered masses, hovering on the page and built up to the point of obliteration or destruction of the ground. Each work contains the written recording of the artist’s obsession with objects like light bulbs, electrical sockets, food and the names of cities and people. Dan continues to work in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, ceramics, wood sculpture, printmaking, and other mixed media projects.
Miller is included in Viva Arte Viva (curated by Christine Macel), at the 57th Venice Biennale. A prominent “Outsider” artist, his artwork is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York; Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; and the Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive (BAM/PFA), Berkeley, CA. He has received solo exhibitions at Ricco/Maresca Gallery, New York (2014), Galerie Christian Berst, Paris, France (2014), White Columns (2007), New York; and was included in Create (Curated by Lawrence Rinder, with Matthew Higgs) at BAM/PFA (2011).
