John S. Miller

Oscar Wilde said: “The true mystery of the world is the visible, not the invisible”. This idea has guided me long before I ever read this quote. My inclination has been to look at things as though they remain unknown, may remain unknowable, but can be known with greater depth than is currently the case. I try to look at the world with fresh eyes, the way I looked at the world as a child. Now I bring an educated adult mind to this process as well as a richer level of self awareness. I believe that through making art I can better understand the world and my place in it and hope to inspire a more nuanced perspective in a viewer. When I try to make something that pays tribute to what I think I’m seeing, I’m very much aware of how much I don’t know. In addition, while making my art, I try to observe myself and my work with those same fresh eyes hoping to learn from my own awkward gestures, tendencies, strengths and weaknesses. My analytic and creative processes drive me from piece to piece. I want to understand more.
