"This is an absurdist piece that tries to explore the relationship between anxiety and rest," says Stow. A nude man rests, one leg crossed, and his headed shrouded in a black drape extending from the wall. Accompanied by a bowl of apples, a lone plant in the corner, and a blue sheet - all classic art historical symbols.
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.
