Dominic Paul Miller

b. 1981

Dominic is a visual artist who works within representations of social conflict and technological advance. His sculpture and drawing-based production often emerges from collaborative or situated practices located in the peripheries of the western United States. The resulting forms temporarily occupy landscapes or mediate social settings in which precarious identities are constructed. His most recent body of work was developed in Tijuana with participation from the labor rights collective, Ollin Calli. As a complex investigation of collaboration and negotiation, the artworks, meanwhile, hold in tension the classic monumentality of sculpture and the bodyís reception as a genre. Millerís artworks have been exhibited in New York at Melville House Publishing, Berlin's OKK, SOMA in Mexico City, El Paso Museum of Art, Scottsdale Museum of Art, and Vincent Price Museum in Los Angeles. In 2014 he was a U.S. Fulbright research fellow to Mexico.
