> DESCRIPTION

PEVETO is honored to welcome GREG MILLER for his first solo exhibition in Texas entitled, OVER TIME

For this special exhibition, we published an interview between Greg Miller and L.A. arts writer, Peter Frank. The interview reveals Miller's readiness as a cultural participant and as a contemporary storyteller. Miller's work is steeped in mid 20th century Pop history including Advertising, Literature, Film and Street Culture; 

if you are a fan of Pop-Art, you are automatically a fan of Greg Miller. These 12 new works are rich constructions on canvas that seem to be lifted from the streets of America – decades of accumulated, overlaid advertisements and graffiti that populate the sides of the buildings in our hometown. Each painting is a physical representation, something between sculpture and painting, representing an archaic and nostalgic record of time. 

Labeled a neo-pop and post-pop artist by such critics as Donald Kuspit and Peter Frank, Miller does indeed draw from the pop-culture imagery that saturated American consciousness during the 1950s and 1960s. It was a time during which advertising and text became indelibly encrypted into our experiences of everyday life. – Artweek.LA

Greg Miller received his Masters of Arts from San José State University and Bachelors of Arts from San Francisco Art Institute and has been exhibiting since 1975. His work has been collected by Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art, Contemporary Art Center in New Orleans, San José Museum of Art, and the Kemper Museum of Art; private collections include the Charles Saatchi Collection, Playboy Enterprises, Sharon Stone, Toby Maguire, John Paul, Eloise DeJoria, Kyle Ransford and Jessica Alba.
