Congrats to Steve Miller, who has taken his art to a whole new level–clothing and housewares.
Our friend and neighbor, who has long embraced new technology in his work, is now offering select designs via his Steve Miller Fashion line with Art Multiple. It’s a natural progression from his 2011 Fashion Animal series, which juxtaposed x-rays of Amazon animals with images of fashion accessories, representing and linking different dynamics of consumption and desire. Well done Steve!
Speaking of fashion, make sure to look for several of our other favorites–including Margaret Garrett, Bastienne Schmidt, Almond Zigmund and Philippe Cheng–who have works on view at Malia Mills in East Hampton. The “Winter Salon” exhibit will remain on view through January 1. A portion of the proceeds from art sales will support charities such as: Project Most, Jeff’s Kitchen at the Hayground School, The Sprouts Program at Bridgehampton School and The Perfect Earth Project. We always applaud philanthropic efforts!
And lastly, gigantic cheers to Eric Fischl, whose “new painting fresh off the easel” debuted on social media on December 13. “Late America” is not just an incredible work of art, it’s also a beautifully executed and eloquent statement on modern times. Read all about it in this Vulture piece by Pulitzer Prize nominee Jerry Saltz, which I think absolutely nails it. Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!
