Blue Square


- +

The basic geometrical shape of a square is defined by its borders. Each 4”x 4” square foam piece has been cut and soaked in a primer paint and when dry, adhered to the canvas. The artist’s process of soaking, drying, and then applying to the canvas leaves the viewer with an imperfect and disfigured square. Miller’s painting titled BLUE SQUARE is meant to allow the viewer to move beyond the borders of perfection and instead feel a sense of freedom. In other words, Miller asks us to think outside the box. The problem is that our “out-of-the-box” thinking generally happens within the confines of the colonial imagination — simply because, for many of us, it’s all we’ve ever known. This imperfect space between the blue squares allows our eyes and mind to recognize an opening. These openings offer a freedom of escape into the unknown.
