Adam Miller’s Contemporary Mythological Paintings

millerpainting3

With his paintings, Adam Miller recontextualizes baroque and Hellenistic style elements by placing them within a modern futuristic landscape. Miller implements mythological, ecological, and humanistic themes in order to address ideas of technology and progress and “the struggle to find meaning in a world poised between expansion and decay.” His dreamy and angelic compositions reflect contemporary concerns with a classic and realist style. Imagery that might at first appear dated and inaccessible becomes relatable and modern upon closer inspection.

    Extraordinary work – disturbing perhaps because the technique is as strong as the subject matter. Not much redemption for humanity here.
