Born 1961, Castro Valley, CA.
Dan Miller’s artwork reflects his perceptions. Letters and words are repeatedly overdrawn, often creating ink layered masses, hovering on the page and built up to the point of obliteration or destruction of the ground. Each work contains the written recording of the artist’s obsession with objects like light bulbs, electrical sockets, food and the names of cities and people. In 2007 Dan had a solo exhibition at White Columns, New York and participated in group shows at Gavin Brown’s enterprise, ABCD, Paris and was featured at The Armory Show, New York.
