The London gallery Scream is showing Greg Miller’s new mixed media works that explore the urban streetscape of his American roots. In paint and collage, he references travels with his father from northern California through the San Joaquin Valley in the 1950s, recording with his young artist eye the ripped and torn billboards along Highway 99.
Miller’s abstracted backgrounds of drips, patterns, and phrases and the peeling back of layers provide a study in the impermanence of the things that surround us. His large-scale paintings and installations aim to make the most fleeting parts of American culture tangible. –Exhibition Notes
