Johnny Miller bids us to enter an uncertain world that exists beyond the comforting illusion of intellectual meaning. Drawing on vivid childhood memories, historical and contemporary figurative imagery, he searches out hidden aspects of the human condition.

Creating a poetic patchwork of disparate symbols, Johnny Miller invites us to draw on our lived experience to explore the puzzling islands of identity that we inhabit. A common theme is the culturally imposed and/or fragile nature of masculinity. Through his art Johnny Miller shares a very personal artistic journey with us that feels timeless and, though he asks the viewer to step beyond the everyday, he always guides us with a generous and humorous spirit.
