B. 1961, United States
Dan Miller’s artwork reflects his perceptions. Letters and words are repeatedly overdrawn, often creating ink-layered masses, hovering on the page and built up to the point of obliteration or destruction of the ground. Each work contains the written recording of the artist’s obsession with objects like light bulbs, electrical sockets, food and the names of cities and people. Dan continues to work in a variety of media, including drawing, painting, ceramics, wood sculpture, printmaking, and other mixed media projects. He has worked at Creative Growth since 1992.
Miller has had solo exhibitions at White Columns (2007), Andrew Edlin Gallery (2018, and 2019 at Frieze New York), Ricco Maresca Gallery (2014), and Diane Rosenstein Gallery (2020). His work was included in the 2017 Venice Biennale, and has been included in exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum, The Museum of Everything (London), John Michael Kohler Arts Center (Sheboygan, WI), and Collection abcd / Bruno Decharme (Paris). Miller’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum (Washington D.C.), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the American Folk Art Museum (New York), the Berkeley Art Museum, Mad Musée (Liège, Belgium), and the Collection de l’Art Brut (Lausanne).
