  • Dan Miller, Untitled (239_2016), 2016, acrylic and ink on paper, Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Robson Family Collection, Gift of Douglas O. Robson, 2022.3, © Creative Growth Art Center

Miller’s imagery runs from the easily legible to the entirely abstract. His family has offered context for pieces with readable passages: the names of significant people, objects with a particular resonance, memories from his uncle’s hardware store — recollections tucked into visual nests for safekeeping. But overall, Miller’s paintings don’t need interpretation. They powerfully convey a creative practice rooted in the daily effort to chart a visual record of experience. Miller and his art reveal the humanity in valuing uniquely personal languages and the exchanges they enable.
