Harland Miller
Plan B - My Story
Medium: Oil on canvas
Year made: 2004
Harland Miller (b. 1964, Yorkshire) is both a writer and an artist whose career has spanned both Europe and America. "Plan B - My Story" is part of a series of paintings that began in 2001, based on the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller finds a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction, and figurative painting, with his writer’s love of text. The images are humours, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of the Penguin classics themselves.
Location: London
Date acquired: 21 February 2008
