"This is a surrealist work that explores indulgence, disguise, and ultimately our relationship to pleasure," says Stow. Two masked actors center around a bowl of objects, possibly representing desire. Larger representations of the same objects rest at their feet. The man in yellow expresses interest while the figure in green seems to carry a burden.
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.
