More POP to Pop-Art, GREG MILLER's New Exhibition of Paintings at PEVETO are Physical Constructions that Represent a Nostalgic Record of Hometown, America
Miller's work is steeped in mid-20th century popular culture including Advertising, Literature, Film and Street Graffiti; if you are a fan of Pop-Art, you are automatically a fan of Greg Miller. These 12 new works are rich constructions on canvas that seem to be lifted from the streets of Hometown, America - decades of accumulated, overlaid advertisements and graffiti that populate the sides of time-worn buildings. The physicality of the paintings, something between painting and sculpture, gives the viewer an archaic and nostalgic record of time.
"Labeled a neo-pop and post-pop artist by such critics as Donald Kuspit and Peter Frank, Miller does indeed draw from the pop-culture imagery that saturated American consciousness during the 1950s and 1960s. It was a time during which advertising and text became indelibly encrypted into our experiences of everyday life". - Artweek.LA
A special exhibition catalogue with an interview between Greg Miller and Los Angeles arts writer, Peter Frank is available. The interview reveals Miller's readiness as a cultural participant and as a contemporary storyteller.
