ALAC remembers the artist John M. Miller who passed away in December 2016. A solo presentation of his works will be at the booth of Peter Blake Gallery (Laguna Beach). Known for his hard-edged method of painting, Miller was a seminal, if lesser-known, fixture of the Southern Californian art scene, admired by Mike Kelley and numerous curators and critics. His idiosyncratic style applied geometric streaks of paint on unprimed, raw canvas, conveying a unique understanding of the relationship between the viewer and painted surface. His work was included in a special exhibition Departures at the J. Paul Getty Museum in 2000, and his paintings are part of the collections of The Getty, LACMA, MOCA and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
