Harland Miller’s works switch between being melancholy, hilarious and nostalgic as his own phrases replace the original titles of Penguin books. Interested in the contradictions associated with love - it being a torment as well as a pleasure - his works show, often in an excruciatingly personal but humorous way, the complexity of the human mind when it comes to romance. He uses the moniker, ‘International Lonely Guy’ as his persona which is also the title of his monograph. Producing work both thought-provoking and hilarious at times, Miller has found a way to use his own brand of sardonic humor to marry aspects of PopArt, abstraction and figuration all at once.
Harland Miller was born in Yorkshire in 1964 and lives and works in London.
