This piece is a portrait of my girlfriend and me. It is meant to illustrate the other world you can exist in while in love and with a person. The realm in which we stand is “real” in the sense that it identifies with what most people would agree is a correct visual demonstration of the world. Those behind us, our devourers, are much less “real” and can even be considered an amusing cartoon. This is to demonstrate the loss of reality of those around you who's judgments you feel liberated from.

Getting to Know Stow

One of UGallery’s youngest emerging artists, Stow Miller has a fresh pop aesthetic that straddles a fine line between playful and provocative. The work tackles the convoluted arena of modern sexuality and the emotional complexities of young adulthood. Stow attempts to explore the ways in which young people perceive relationships and themselves using a cheeky visual narrative. His nudes allude to the sexual undercurrents of popular culture and commercial society, all the while remaining colorfully light-hearted.
