Steve Miller Launches New Book in The Hamptons at Harper's Books
Artist Steve Miller debuts his new book in The Hamptons on Friday, August 25, 2017 from 5 to 7 p.m. at Harper's Books in East Hampton, NY.
"Radiographic: X-Ray Photo Inventions" presents a survey of art by Steve Miller spanning around 20 years, organized through his use of technology in his art making process.
Steve Miller's art incorporates imagery created through x-ray machines and the like to capture unusual views of natural subjects and man-made objects to create complex representational and abstract images. In addition to X-Rays, Miller makes use CAT Scans, MRI machines, aerial remote systems, electron microscopes and other technology-driven equipment to create images that are woven with painting or printing or both to create mixed media works.
Through the art, Miller pushes boundaries of both science and technology to reveal a unique look at our natural and human-made worlds. In exploring the intersections, the work can also spark dialogue on what's needed to preserve the planet's ecosystems and all its inhabitants.
Steve Miller will be on hand on Friday to answer questions and sign his new hardcover book, "Radiographic: X-Ray Photo Inventions," published by Glitterati last month. "Radiographic" features a foreword by conservationist and award-winning writer Carl Safina, a preface by curator and writer Marvin Heiferman and an essay by Miller.
Steve Miller's art incorporates a variety of sources include blood cells, plants and animals from the Amazon rainforest, the folding of proteins and the movement of ions. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Artforum, Art in America, Le Monde, La Nouvelle Republique, Hamptons Art Hub and others. He is based in New York City and The Hamptons.
In addition, he recently released a new design line of surfboards and skateboards that incorporates his fine art onto their surfaces. Click here to browse. His work is currently on view at Sara Nightingale Gallery in Sag Harbor as part of the group show "Soft Spoken."
