Dan Miller (DM 1095)
Born 1961, Castro Valley, California
Has practiced at Creative Growth since 1992
Dan Miller’s artwork is composed of obsessive overlays of words and imagery that often build to the point of abstraction. Each work contains a written record of Miller’s interests in hardware stores, lightbulbs, electrical sockets and familiar people, however only a few words are identified in its final stage. Largely nonverbal, Miller was taught at an early age to write words and numbers in order to communicate. This became the primary influence on his artistic practice, transforming text into graphic elements, and employing an abstracted visual language as a tool of inquiry and expression. Miller’s work is included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Centre Pompidou, the Folk Art Museum, the Berkeley Art Museum, the Mad Musée, and the Collection de l’Art Brut, Lausanne.
