Twenty Three


- +

The phrase, “Everything is Bigger in Texas” is a popular American expression that most likely originated from the state’s vast geographical area. Miller has chosen to play on the expression in this bold and colorful painting titled TWENTY-THREE. When walking the city streets of downtown Dallas, Miller uses his cell phone to capture images of the massive steel buildings that make up the Texas skyline. Focusing on specific aspects of the buildings, Miller loves to capture certain lines and angles with his camera app. Miller scours through each individual image to find the forms and shapes that will emulate the intensity and power of the buildings in addition to using multi-layers of acrylic paint to achieve the exact color hue to hide the brushstrokes. This command of the perfect brushstroke mirrors the appearance of a building demanding to appear bigger than it is. The goal for the artist is to give the viewer the feeling of walking through the forest, like the Bob Marshall Wilderness in Montana, another favorite of the artist, while walking amongst these gigantic structures every day.
