Greg Miller’s classic imagery explored the endless vacation- lounging poolside, mountain adventures in the snow, weekend trips to the movies. Images spanning from kitch popcorn bags to photorealistic swimmers intermingle with retro text, reminding us that such picture perfect memories only exist in the past, their flaws faded by the passage of time. Greg Miller longs to recreate these faded memories. The images worn down on the surface are sprinkled with odd collage objects, sporadic moments that create puzzles for the viewer to piece together.
Greg Miller never ceases to surprise with his tireless quest for nostalgic moments. His work is infused with optimism, a space where endless possibilities are explored.
“My work is sexy, thought provoking, and Angeleno inspired art, where unspoken heroes, and the lure of women casually mingle together. I offer the excitement of discovery mixed with the unexpected thrill of recovering something long lost. Bold contemporary images and popular themes are intermingled with text and presented in billboard-like simplicity, offering a varied and often surprising look at the timelessness of American historical and cultural events. The merging of pop culture, American Art, and the conceptual art movement of the 60s and 70s provide the content that is found throughout my art, paintings, and films.” – Greg Miller .
