About Michael Paul Miller
Miller creates oil paintings that explore the sublime nature of existence through post-¬-apocalyptic environments. However, while employing elements that suggest death, disaster and desolation, Miller does not abandon hope or beauty. Rather, he delicately balances the two extremes, allowing for open-¬-ended inquiry into the human condition. As a result, the work often addresses a range of contemporary issues.
The images contained in the paintings are sourced from multiple direct and indirect references, including observation, imagination, memory, subconscious thought, literature, film, and art history. The visual sources are conflated, recontextualized, altered, and translated into paint though a long studio process that often takes month to complete. Miller is moved by the power and versatility of oil paint and uses traditional techniques in creating his work. He uses a dark, rich, color palette for the subdued tones of the distressed atmosphere, which contrast sharply with the bright, often cautionary, colors that break through the darkness with alarming beauty.
