Harland Miller is a writer and artist, based in both Europe and America.
Miller published his debut novel, Slow down Arthur, Stick to Thirty, in 2001. In the same year he published a small novella, First I was Afraid, I was Petrified. In 2001, Miller produced a series of paintings based of the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text.
Miller was the writer in residence at the ICA for 2002 and over the course of his residence he programmed a number of events drawing from his experience in literature and fine art, which included a season devoted to the ongoing influence and legacy of Edgar Allen Poe.
His group exhibitions include the Royal Academy, Kunsthalle, Mannheim and the ICA.
