NEW YORK, NY.-
Steve Millers innovative artistic experiments merge X-ray imagery with the complex beauty of nature. In RADIOGRAPHIC
, we see this fascinating technique in book form. A large part of Millers work has been devoted to walking the line to the intersection of art and science. Working with scientific equipment including electron microscopes, X-rays, MRI machines, and even Rorschach blots, Miller examines natural subjects (and man-made ones, too) through an xray technology that results in astonishingly beautiful representational and abstract pictures.
Admired equally by scientists with whom he has worked at establishments like New Yorks Brookhaven National Laboratory; art curators who have exhibited and/or written about his work, like The National Academy of Sciences in Washington, DC and essayist Peter Schieldahl; as well as consumers who eagerly snatch up his wall-sized prints at retailers like Artspace, Millers breakthrough and exciting explorations have created the unique profile of an artist who thinks conceptually while engaging universally. His art is represented in permanent collections internationally.
Miller's choice in subject matter knows no bounds, pulling from such diverse elements as blood cells, x-rays of plants and animals from the Amazon rainforest, the folding of proteins, and the movement of ions. The first monograph from a founding father of SciArt, RADIOGRAPHIC offers an opportunity to see the work of a creative talent described by The New Yorker as qualifying as a Prophet and who has expanded the boundaries of what we know as art today.
