"Unfortunately, perhaps, this work asks more questions than it answers," explains Stow Miller. "It is a depiction of a purgatory, whether before or after death is irrelevant. It is a reflection of suffering being embraced by sin, trusted by faith, and ignored by arrogance. There is no direction, nor present light, only hope and confidence in action."
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.
