Christopher Knight reviews the exhibition John M. Miller: Yesterdays on view at Margo Leavin Gallery, Los Angeles, on view through November 12, 2011.
Knight notes: "Miller's paintings virtually demand an investment in contemplative time. Without it, they remain essentially out of sight. Some of the angled bars mix blue, purple or green pigment into black, meaning that the richness and depth of color remains invisible if the glance is cursory... The experience of perceptual clarity is remarkable, worthy of a secular chapel."
