Showing: June 26th-July 31st, 2020

JoAnne Artman Gallery is pleased to present, “CAVE PAINTER,” an exclusive online exhibition featuring the works of Greg Miller.

A self-proclaimed ‘contemporary cave painter,’ Miller’s process is steeped in all aspects of culture, art, architecture, and images that surround him. Combining his paintings with found elements on the surface of his canvases and panels, he addresses both art history and the fleeting nature of cultural ephemera and collective memory.

In a mixed media approach that ties together the pictorial storytelling and societal documentation of a cave painter with his own Californian roots, Miller creates tangible, visual narratives across his compositions. “I keep exploring my relationship with the space that I inhabit to communicate a particular experience,” says Miller. “I continue to appropriate, work with paint and collage, and explore the contradiction, ambiguity, and truth between urban streetscape and history.”

Integrating image and text with moments of poetic juxtaposition and historical allusion, Miller often uses archival texts, illustrations, newspaper, and photographs as a base. Completing the works with elements of typography as well as the painted form, he produces optic landscapes of great narrative depth. With each piece chronicling the past, present, and future, Miller’s unique brand of Americana celebrates and notes society’s ties to the iconic imagery that transcends the passage of time.

Greg Miller will inspire, provoke, engage and mesmerize. With visual perceptions always changing, peek behind the stories told and you’re sure to find the right artistic expression.
