Artists Statement

“This new series of works celebrates the culmination of ideas based upon the last 20 years. 20120909-024108.jpgThese paintings concentrate and focus on the fading of one idea into another with distorted images and abstracted thoughts. Based on the notion that we live in a throw away world each painting both suggests and questions the importance of certain celebrated things. Celebrity, Fame, Money and Greed feature as important issues for each of us. These are depicted as both fading memories and future hopes. 20120909-024554.jpgThe comic imagery signifies the unimportance of these things and helps to suggest that they have been manufactured for a temporary audience. Looking more closely the paintings illustrate a feeling of shallow existence. Surrounded by a myriad of colour, shapes and abstractions our lives are exactly the opposite. The ‘LIVING FOR THE MOMENT’ society, which actively encourages human singularism, seems almost unsustainable. Perhaps a return to
truer values is the way forward. Certainly with current consumerism and appetite for fame and success, societies will neither progress nor benefit. Take a look…now take a closer look.” McAlpine Miller

Having worked to develop his unique style McAlpine Miller is now concentrating his attentions on an exciting new series of work as premiered at Memories & Futures, Grosvenor Street, Mayfair in 2010.
