One of the inspirations for Miller’s large-scale tree portraits was a scene he encountered while driving across the Great Plains and farmlands: a single tree in the distance. Complete in its solitude, this tree embodies the complicated notion of strength in openness that guides Miller’s process and culminates in this series.
By engaging presence and light, Miller’s tree portraits explore various moods and moments in time; the physical representation of each subject is secondary to the impression it leaves.
Miller’s slow, methodical painting demands engaged restraint, allowing room for the intuitive elements of painting–based on the artist’s experience of movement, light, air, and color–to be as much an indicator of the final product as the trees themselves.
