Easton Miller is a Los Angeles-based artist known for his works that have both painterly and sculptural qualities. He uses a wide range of found and chosen materials to make work that cross-pollinates between sculpture and painting with humor and intelligence.

Thrones Gallery

Born in 1985, Easton Miller received the presidential scholarship from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2004, and completed his BFA in 2008 with a double major in Fine Arts and Art History. Shortly after graduating he built and ran Thrones Gallery for the next year. Thrones Gallery is an exhibition space located in the West Loop gallery district of Chicago, and is dedicated to the public exposure of talented emerging artists.

Easton Miller’s Style

All of the Easton Miller’s work from the last few years follows the same ideological method, but varies greatly in the aesthetic execution. Whenever he hears something interesting, he writes the quote down in a small notebook that he carries with him everywhere that he goes. Inspired by these phrases/quotes, Miller creates a visual representation of them using various materials.
“I see the works as ‘portraits of circumstance’ – both the situational honesty from where I’ve drawn the original content, and the shifted meaning once these phrases are placed in a fine art context.”
To Miller, materials matter just as much for their unique structural phenomena as for their interactivity with paint.
