About the work

Dan Miller’s artwork is composed of obsessive overlays of words and imagery that often build to the point of abstraction. Each work contains a written record of Miller’s interests in hardware stores, lightbulbs, electrical sockets, and familiar people, yet only a few words are identifiable by the final stage. Largely nonverbal, Miller was taught at an early age to write words and numbers in order to communicate. This became the primary influence on his artistic practice: transforming text into graphic elements and employing an abstracted visual language as a tool of inquiry and expression.
