James Miller is a painter living in Brooklyn, NY. His painting practice draws heavily from the history of photographic and light-based media in both method and aesthetics—translating the rhetoric of an additive light process to a subtractive color medium. Miller captures traces of movement, light, and shadow with acrylic paint on canvas in a process parallel to cameraless photography.
Miller received his MFA from Yale School of Art in 2014 and was a Dedalus Foundation Fellow in 2015. His paintings have been shown throughout the U.S. and Europe—including the solo exhibition “Sun Muzzle” at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery in NY, and in group exhibitions “The Dust” at The Centre Pompidou and “Painting As Is” at The Fosdick-Nelson Gallery.
