Since his first solo show in 1994, Jamieson Miller's art has dramatized the tension between its formal and its thematic orientations. Reviewers and critics alike have repeatedly highlighted the ability of Miller's work to rearticulate biological processes. And yet, by virtue of its abstraction and its obsession with formal compositional practices, the work also sets itself free from any simple relationship to a referent. Hence the sense that these often elusive sculptures are forever caught on the cusp of their own meaning, occupying a threshold between formalism and a potentially programmatic exploration of material, and, above all, corporeal experiences.
