July 18, 2013 by Megan Koester in Upcoming Events with 0 Comments

Greg Miller, Fabulous Las Vegas

Drawing on the cultural and geographic influences of his California roots, Greg Miller explores images of the American urban and rural landscape of the mid-twentieth century. The work grabs us nostalgically, rousing a shared cultural memory, but also teaches something of their lingering pull on contemporary perception.

Greg Miller, Double Lucky

Labeled a “neo-pop” and “post-pop” artist by such critics as Donald Kuspit and Peter Frank, Miller does indeed draw from the pop-cultural imagery that saturated American consciousness during the 1950’s and 1960’s. It was a time during which advertising and text became indelibly encrypted into our experience of everyday life.

Greg Miller, Blonde Phantom

Life as “advertised” and life as “lived” were insuperably intertwined on the pages of LIFE and LOOK magazines, on television shows, commercials, billboards, hotel signs, romance novels and even matchbook covers as never before. Miller’s paintings excavate this imagery and often appear as unreconstructed fragments of these signs, drips, patterns and phrases. These form the layers of Miller’s pop cultural imagery, both literally and figuratively.
