Stuart McAlpine Miller
Using subtle tones of paint Stuart creates the illusion of transparencies within his works. A reality that is so far-fetched that it becomes a busy blur of objects, which portray the idea of an energy-laden consumer society.
Contrasting themes of cartoons/superheroes and stylish European models help to illustrate the unrealistic idealism that these celebrated objects present. How the subject matter overlaps and fades into each other not only shows forgotten memories and aspirations but also illustrates a feeling of a shallow existence.
In Autumn 2012 Stuart took up a residency at The Savoy Hotel to create a series of eight paintings to feature in their iconic foyer. This is alongside other high profile commissions in both London and Hong Kong.
“The ‘living for the moment’ society, which actively encourages human singularism, seems almost unsustainable. Perhaps a return to truer values is the way forward. Take a look…now take a closer look."
He has also been tipped as a hot investment by renowed art critic Estelle Lovett in a recent BBC news interview (approx 3 mins into the interview).
