Behind the Scenes with Adam Miller
Adam Miller (Hi-Fructose Vol. 26) paints the apocalypse with an airy touch of Romanticism. In his work, idyllic nudes are not mere eye candy, but rather symbols of escape from a corrupt society undergoing a catastrophic collapse. In his latest paintings, which are currently on view in Vered Gallery’s group show “Art on the Edge,” Miller writes a new chapter in his post-apocalyptic narrative. Titled Twilight in Arcadia and The Roses Never Bloomed So Red, the new works show the nude figures attacked by clothed hunters who appear to emerge from the world the nude figures tried to escape. For Twilight in Arcadia, artists Alexandra Pacula, Billy Norby and Martin Wittfooth posed as the hunters — a little wink to the attentive contemporary art fan.
