Harland Miller

ACE, a new edition by Harland Miller, is taken from the painting of the same title, first shown in the artist’s 2017 solo show at White Cube, Londonwhere Miller introduced his series Letter Paintings. Unlike Miller's book cover series, which work around the idea of 'the title', the Letter Paintings are paintings of words - single short words or acronyms made up of only two, three or four letters. These letters then appear overlaid on the canvas in a format inspired by the illuminated letters of medieval manuscripts, a form to which Miller brings a Pop Art sensibility that aims to combine and celebrate both the sacred and the everyday - or the humdrum nature of words such as If, Bi and Up

Harland Miller
Harland Miller (born 1964, Yorkshire) is an artist and writer. He studied at Chelsea School of Art, graduating in 1988, since when his work has included paintings, sculptures, and mixed-media pieces with influences as disparate as Edgar Allen Poe, Ernest Hemingway, Ed Ruscha, Mark Rothko, Anselm Kiefer, and Robert Rauschenberg. Miller is probably best known for his large-scale paintings of imaginary Penguin book covers. The invented titles offer a mordant take on contemporary life, and include 'Whitby: The Self-Catering Years'; 'York, So Good They Named It Once' and 'Incurable Romantic Seeks Dirty Filthy Whore'. Miller’s solo exhibitions include those held at the Marianne Boesky Gallery in New York (2005), White Cube in Hoxton Square, London (2012), and Blain Southern in Berlin (2016), with a recent solo show at White Cube Hong Kong (2019).
