Stow explains of this piece, "This is the story of a man who was told to walk in the pursuit of eternal nothingness granted by God. After walking for several months and existing in a state of stagnant decay, as was God's will, to make him suffer eternally in the mortal plane for his request to die and not experience heaven or hell. He was granted mercy by an angel who gifted him a flower to eat which sent his mind into oblivion, where he neither was nor wasn't and could not be found by God."
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.
