Description

Throughout his career, John Miller has pursued an ambitious and cross-disciplinary

investigation into so-called middlebrow culture and artifice-laden consumer

societies. His recent relief sculptures and installations feature gilded junk—found

Styrofoam, plastic objects, and discarded wood tables overlaid with gold leaf. The

works reference the decadence of our current moment and speak to the instability

of cultural and economic excess. He has presented major exhibitions at Museum

Ludwig, Cologne, Germany; Kunsthalle Zurich, Switzerland; and Contemporary Art

Centre, Vilnius, Lithuania.
