The Rise and Fall
This exhibition consists of two complementary installations that both glorify and equate the monumental with the domestic. One uses the domestic material of aluminum baking pans to replicate the cavernous and ornate ceiling of a cathedral. The other uses the monumental material of white marble to glorify the humble simplicity of a homemade cake. This exhibition addresses the search for permanence and fantasy, yet simultaneously finds comfort within the everyday.
Press for The Rise and Fall:
“As with Baudrillard's fastidious character who begins with creating buildings out of cake and ends with creating a world out of concrete, so too does Miller wish to create a separate world....”
“Evidently fascinated by ornamental carvings and architectural embellishments on old buildings, Miller creates installations that reference not only by-gone craft but also modern replications....”
- Susan Gibson Garvey, Dalhousie Art Gallery (Halifax), December 2002.
