This piece has no narrative structure, and that pains me every time I look at it. Some have said they thought the piece is about a man grieving over almost getting laid, but I feel that to be grasping for air. This piece for me resonates as a warning to absence of life that can be manifested from a moment. The figures may not even be there as the women has no shadow, this is a lack of content portrayed in the most deceiving manner possible. This is my Campbell’s soup can.

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.
