In this x-ray, the visceral innards of a snake are exposed, uncovering a mouse resting in the lower parts of its tail. The transparent body of the reptile folds and unfolds along its dark vertebrae in harmonious loops until it reaches the small head, thereby forming an elegant and unexpected composition.Read Less

Living and working between the Hamptons and New York since the 1970s, Steve Miller is best known for his paintings, which combine aspects of art, science, and technology. From realist painter to installation artist, to "genetic portraitist," to abstract painter, Miller's impulse has been the same: to wrestle with the fundamentals of life through visual media. He says of his own work: "When art and science intersect, it changes the context, beefs up the scale, and alters responses to imagery in unexpected ways. Images of the smallest of things become images you can get lost in. Scientists may not need or necessarily want that kind of scale or distraction. They're making science; they're looking for specific solutions. I'm making art and trying to communicate with a different audience, and scale is just one of the ways I try to do that."
Miller is an artist whose knowledge of visual culture and technology allows him to create works that are both densely intellectual and aesthetically beautiful. Trained by silkscreen printers who worked with Andy Warhol, and inspired by artists like Robert Rauschenberg who boldly mixed imagery in his work, Miller's photographs and paintings are uniquely wrought examinations of the systems that constitute our world.Read Less
