Love, A Decisive Blow Against If
In 2012 the 16-colour screenprint Love, A Decisive Blow Against If was published by Harland Miller to coincide with a major solo exhibition at Ingleby Gallery.
Harland Miller is an artist and writer. In 2000, his debut novel Slow Down Arthur, Stick to Thirty, the story of a kid who travelled around northern England with a David Bowie impersonator received critical acclaim. The following year he produced his first series of paintings based on the dust jackets of Penguin books. Since then, Miller has used the penguin motif to produce striking work which combine elements of pop art, abstraction, and figurative painting.
The covers that Miller depicts are tattered and dog-eared and the titles, which highlight his love of language, range from the nostalgic to the hilarious from the poignant to the melancholic.
Harland Miller was born in Yorkshire and currently lives and works in London.
