Paris, 1 March – 19 April 2003

John Miller’s first show with the gallery.

"Here I present two elements: body and earth. Between them is a common syntax, one easily taken for granted. This syntax encompasses both real and projected arrangements. In painting jargon, it plays out as a dichotomy between figure and ground. The body develops as a highly organized state, thus precarious and unstable. The earth is everything in the background, prior to the appearance of any discrete figure. Yet, the body is the ground, so to speak, of subjectivity. The brush stroke has become a discredited index of this. With no useful coordinates, the brush stroke has become homeless..." — John Miller
