The unadorned simplicity of Carl Miller's imagistic works on paper underlies what is a fervently individualistic viewpoint, a spirit that can be traced all the way back to the groundbreaking works of William Blake and Walt Whitman, the two great visionary poets of the 18th and 19th centuries. Pairing poems with their matched abstract drawings, each canto of Miller's works breathes full life from two different ways of understanding their meaning, through hints and gestures supplied by word and imagery. Together, they become something else for the imagination. Printed on large format paper and displayed in total for this exhibition, these works suggest they are not one or the other, but more as variations on a familiar theme – notes on a palimpsest, creating a chorus of sight and language.
