The Caldwell Snyder Gallery here in San Francisco is currently hosting an exhibition of the work of Texas-based artist Greg Miller, and I had the real pleasure of checking it out last weekend. As a fan of Pop Art retro noir, his work is right up my alley. Seeing the actual pieces was a real kick, like a feverish dream left over from a David Lynch film.
An mash-up of vintage advertising, B-movies, battered text, trashy pulp fiction pinups, and vintage signage, Miller describes his work as “something you find in your grandfather’s garage and don’t want to throw away, because it’s cool.”
However you choose to describe it, welcome to Greg Miller’s ultra-cool blast from the past!
Visit Greg Miller’s website to see more of his work!
Here’s an excellent San Francisco Chronicle article in which Greg Miller describes his creative process!
Hurry! The Greg Miller exhibition at the Caldwell Snyder Gallery, titled “Down By The River,” is showing until May 31, so if you’re in San Francisco before then, be sure to check it out!
