Jeff McMillan was born in Lubbock, Texas in 1968. He studied fine arts at universities in Texas and Alabama before moving to the U.K in 1998. His work approaches painting through materiality and process, often in dialogue with the found object.
The exhibition Dark Parade includes paintings from the series Biblio, a selection of works on paper made using a library of formative books the artist shipped from America to the U.K. in the late 1990s, largely monographs of influential Twentieth Century painters. McMillan wraps each carefully selected book in paper before dipping it in ink or oil paint to create each new work.
