Harland Miller

TONIGHT WE MAKE HISTORY (P.S. I can't be there) is inspired by the title painting of Harland Miller's 2016 solo exhibiiton at Blain|Southern Berlin, where the artist unveiled a new body of paintings, including a selection of works continuing Miller's iconic Penguin series, which sees the artist playfully reworking Penguin paperback covers. This print is formed through printing multiple etching plates with silver chine collé to create the appearance of a worn book cover that has aged over time. 


Technique

Etching with silver chine collé, printed on Hahnemühle 350gsm paper. Published by Manifold Editions, 2018. 



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, 'One Bar Electric Memoir', at White Cube (Mason's Yard), London, 2017.

Etching with silver chine collé
The silver chine collé is a layer of fine silver-coloured sheet, which is applied to one of the etching plates before printing, and then rolled through the printing press to be applied to the paper. This results in the etching being printed on top of the silver layer, on to the paper. The silver chine collé has a metallic finish, similar to silver leaf.
