I've been trying to move away from striving towards photorealism in my figures' skin. Meaning I'd like them to look like how skin feels, especially in its relation to the surroundings of the figures and each other. This piece is meant to make you feel comfortable touching it and sympathetic even connected to the figures.

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.
