① Artwork:

Not Titled

This graphite painting features the artist's signature use of glyph-like eyes. They function as both symbol and object, playfully flipping between narrative states. Miler’s primary focus in abstracted human forms echoes the aesthetics of the CoBrA group as well as Art Brut’s interest in experimentation and spontaneous expression.

This composition is part of a series of graphite works by the artist that explore the definition of painting and how materials act in the process. They ask the question: "Can something be made by a material that is traditionally seen as preparatory and still be considered a finished work?"

③ Artist:

Anthony Miler

The central focus of Miler’s biomorphic landscape paintings are the glyph-like eyes; they function as both symbol and object, flipping playfully between narrative states. For each composition, the artist first precisely stains the canvas, and then over-paints it using oil pigments mixed with acrylic and water. This process creates a “high-risk environment” that doesn’t allow Miler room for any mistakes.
