Halcombe Miller blogs about the work of painter Grant Miller.

Miller writes that Grant Miller's paintings provide "a visual vocabulary for our current social and technological landscape, and his work truly looks like the sensation of having unfettered access to information: convoluted, dense, and highly intriguing... With thoughtful mark making and controlled, determined layers [he] creates bold, rigid structures that begin to, in a sense, form themselves through a chain reaction... Much like the history we gobble like savory bits in front of our computers, Miller records a set of experiences for all to see, but inherent to the focus of recording is the loss of the information tucked in the peripheral line... In this sense, Millers process mimics the course of attaining and recording all the information technology shoves in our faces while his work exhibits the physical sensations technology induces."
