About Brad Miller

Brad Miller’s abstract, mixed-media paintings, digital prints, sculptures, ceramics, and lithographs express the physical properties of organic systems. “Constantly reconfiguring nature’s most persistent ordering systems is central to my work,” he says. “Close packing, cracking, dendritic systems, and spirals are a few of these familiar images.” Regularly improvising during the process of creating work, he plays on the tension between order and disorder in the natural world, in works that engage color, line, and surface. Miller is not interested in mimesis alone, rather experimenting with a variety of image-making techniques, often unsure of what the final image will look like.
