About The Work

Artspace is thrilled to offer exclusive VIP access to a new charitable edition by prolific British artist and writer Harland Miller, titled XXX. Published by Artspace partner, ICA London, this special Artists' Edition celebrates the institution’s 75th anniversary. All sales proceeds will go towards supporting ICA’s future events, exhibitions, and learning programs.

XXX, is taken from a painting of the same title, first shown in the artist’s 2019 solo show at White Cube, Hong Kong. The print takes the form of the cover of a novel, with the top section a complex graphic layering of letters and colors, counterbalanced by a clean band of neutral color bearing the title and author/artist’s name, where drips of paint at the bottom of the canvas expose its layering of colors. The work is part of an ongoing series, where Miller employs mono or bi-syllabic words to create hard-edged letter paintings with bold, saturated colors that reference, amongst others, Robert Rauschenberg and Ed Ruscha’s use of vernacular signage and motifs. Miller depicts the letters in a range of typefaces, through a process of isolating, overlaying, and reconnecting, to create a sense of depth in the image that deconstructs and abstracts the meaning of language itself. Inspired by illuminated manuscripts, these works bring a Pop sensibility to the lettering of medieval monks, connecting the sacred with the everyday.

The letter X is significant to the artist in its form and design but also given its connotations and connection to punk culture and X-rated cinema. The letters XXX are built up from layers of various colours, their image suggesting objects in motion, where several forms are compressed at once, kaleidoscopic and transparent – like a series of sequential, transparent slides.
