JOHN MILLER: The Petrified Forest

Praz-Delavallade presents The Petrified Forest, a new exhibition by John Miller. John Miller has produced a varied œuvre that includes painting, sculpture, photography and video. With empathy, humor, and insightful observation, Miller plunges into the maelstrom of everyday life to distill the commonplace and the normal. While a lot of Miller’s previous works had to do with the interrogation of value in a capitalist society and the disparities between the price and the meaning of something, his more recent projects offer at once critical and poetic representations of emotional affect, its relationship to bio-power and its impact on individuals. The Petrified Forest is on view until October 11, 2012 at Praz-Delavallade Gallery, 5, Rue Des Haudriettes, 75003, Paris.
