A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Harland Miller

White Cube Gallery / Hong Kong / Art

The British author and artist Harland Miller is known for paintings of iconic book covers (think Penguin Books) that he titles with mordant quips and sly comments. In his first exhibition in Hong Kong, Miller explores language indirectly. Here, text becomes a painterly device. Within the frame of each canvas a one-word title—sin, nude, boss—cues the viewer to the letters in the painting, hugely scaled and layered one on top of the other. It’s a colorful game of hide and seek and seeing. —J.V.
