Fascinated by the conjunction of art and science, by what the contrast between what must be theorized and what can be seen, Steve Miller’s work explores a visual vocabulary of science in photographs, paintings, and sculptures. Working with scientific equipment including electron microscopes, X-rays, MRI machines, and even Rorschach blots, Miller creates surprisingly beautiful work that combines representational and abstract imagery and in doing so, pushes the boundaries of both modern art and technology. Working with scientific scans and data, Steve has created exquisite works based on imagery of blood cells, x-rays of plants and animals from the Amazon rainforest, the folding of proteins, the movement of ions across the cellular membrane, and even the human psyche that are not only beautiful but fascinating to contemplate.
