Matthew Miller: Destabilizing Realism

Image coming soon.

Daniel Larkin reviews the exhibition Matthew Miller: Fools Are Those Who Lose Their Mirrors on view at Pocket Utopia and C.G. Boerner Gallery, New York, on view through October 14, 2012.

Larkin writes: "Most of the critiques of Miller’s work find fault in the destabilizing fissures in his work, like uneven shoulders, differing levels of detail, or the occasional crudely cut line. Others see these choices as a deliberate stylizations with their own advantages. These inconsistencies subvert the effect of realism. After centuries of harmonious proportioned paintings and the hyper-realism of the 20th century, it’s refreshing to see a work that undermines and casts a shadow on its own sense of realism that varies greatly from one work to another."
