① Artwork:

Not Titled (Painting for hot, dry climate)

This biomorphic landscape painting features one of the artist's signature glyph-like eyes. Each one functions as both object and symbol, playfully flipping between narrative states. In Miler’s work, these cosmic dilated pupils can connote many things simultaneously—curiosity and absorption, bulls-eye targets, peepholes and evil-eye repellent charms. They are vortices where focused, generous interaction concentrates and vibrates.

To create this composition, the artist first precisely stained the canvas; then he over-painted 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.

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.
