Ill Met By Moonlight

SWG3 is pleased to present a new series of paintings by Glasgow based artist Dan Miller.

The works in Ill Met By Moonlight are characterised by their juxtaposition of collaged motifs and formal arrangements. Three-dimensional space is rendered and accentuated through the application of mixed media and silkscreened acrylic separations.

Miller’s practice moves fluidly through a wide range of media to create works that investigate the territories of ratio, repetition and scale. Historiographical research and rigorous process support an investigation into the underlying properties of visual and physical material. The resulting works are manipulated through strict method and empirical process, occupying the liminal space between digital and analogue platforms.

Ill Met By Moonlight takes the painting Totes Meer (1940-41) by Paul Nash as a conceptual point of departure. The wrecked aircraft depicted in Nash’s original painting inform the figurative and geometric motifs that hover in Miller’s new work. An undulating sea of mothballed technology is abstracted through multiple colour separations and layers, suggesting the possibility of infinite tessellation beyond the picture plane.
