Michael Edward Miller
Opening reception September 18, 2014 7pm
Exhibition Date: September 18 - October 25, 2014
Robert Lynds Gallery is pleased to present Michael Edward Miller. Miller is a young, emerging Vancouver artist, and his debut at the Robert Lynds Gallery will showcase his newest body of work, ‘BSoD’. In his fourth solo-exhibition, Miller moves forward in his investigation of the history and impact of digital mass-culture. Progressing from his previous explorations of the iconography of home-console gaming, to the media of Microsoft and the emergence of the home computer. Miller’s new body of work, ’BSoD’, examines the representation of the imagery of Microsoft’s Blue Screen of Death. Considered the most contemporary signifier for fear, stress, tension, and frustration, its emergence has changed the representation of the value of time, and shifted the importance of material value in the digital age. Miller’s critical understanding and precise technical skill enables viewers to be transported through memory, reflect on one’s position in a global community, and examine our encompassment in the momentum of the digital age.
Miller’s earlier bodies of work, ‘The Nintendo Generation’, and ‘Punch Out!’ consist of an extended exploration of imagery from the Nintendo Entertainment System. His work has been exhibited locally and internationally.
Established in 2012, Robert Lynds Gallery focuses on emerging and established artists who embrace new media and contemporary art practices. RLG is located in the armoury district in Vancouver and is proud to present Canadian art and vision internationally, advocating in the advancement of knowledge pertaining to the arts, engaging and inspiring diverse audiences.
