Allison Miller's first major NYC show is a knockout. Citing
inspiration from disparate sources such as Vuillard, Fontana, and Magritte, Miller's edgy, mid-size paintings manage to render the uncanny and the absurd in abstract form. Her
process is "a journey
without predetermined destination, a map of its progression contained
within each piece." Since she received her MFA from UCLA in 2001, Miller has been meandering down an interesting, eccentric path . She has shown extensively out west, including exhibitions at ACME,
Los Angeles, the Orange County Museum of Art, the Art Gallery of
Calgary, Canada, Gagosian Gallery, Beverly Hills, and the Las Vegas Museum of Art, but this is her first major solo show in New York.
"Allison Miller," Susan Inglett, New York, NY. Through March 3, 2012.
