Robin Miller: new work @ inthecrystalpalace


Art no longer cares to serve the state and religion, it no longer wishes to illustrate the history of manners, it wants to have nothing further to do with the object, as such, and believes that it can exist, in and for itself, without "things" (that is, the "time-tested well-spring of life").
- Kazimir Malevich, on Suprematism


 Robin Miller / Emperor Falls (with Suprematist addition) / 2014 / collage, chalk, and shellac on paper / 9-1/2 x 9-1/2 x 1-1/4 in. framed.
© 2015 - Robin Miller. All Rights Reserved. 


This piece is from an ongoing series of collages that reflect Robin Miller's reinterpretation of Russian Suprematism. Composed using found materials that date from the time of the original movement (c.1913-1930) the works from this series place Suprematist-based motifs squarely in the real world, counter to the core concept of Suprematism. Are these elements happily and peacefully coexisting, or is something more sinister at work?

This work is titled “Emperor Falls (with Suprematist addition)” and features a central square element composed of vintage tissue paper that has been dusted with a layer of white chalk and sprayed with shellac.

In this collage, “The Wonderful Skyline of New York City (with Suprematist addition)”, the first part of the title is taken from the original caption of the photo, removed from a 1920’s encyclopedia. The photo is partially obscured with a sheet of 19th century tissue paper, and then overlaid with geometric elements cut from the end pages of old books.
