At first glance, we see Miller’s hyper-realistic bridges and watery landscapes, which are the result of a meticulous planning process. The majority of the work is done on the computer, where, in a very lengthy process, he realises the image in his mind pixel by pixel. Coincidence and intention, addition and reduction – these are the variables through which he translates the fantastic landscapes of his imagination into a picture everyone can see. Strictly speaking, his art comes closer to painting than to photography. Through digital manipulation and post-processing, he has the opportunity to create an idealised world without needing to base it on actual existence.
The question at the heart of Miller’s work is: what is reality? When an artist shows us something that could exist, does it automatically become “real” to us, i.e. is it then a part of our reality? He adeptly poses this metaphysical brainteaser, opening a window to another dimension that is usually only accessible to him.
