Richard Diebenkorn Teaching Fellow

Los Angeles–based painter Allison Miller thinks of her paintings as “sites of accumulated and palpable activity where the goal is to keep a two-dimensional, static object in a constant state of flux.” She describes her process as “indexical and paradoxically intuitive,” as a “layering of specific moments, one on top of another, in order to force adjustments of perception and upend easy solutions.” Her paintings pull on multiple visual tropes at once, from landscape to portraiture and collage to cartoons.

Miller has taught at University of California, Irvine; University of California, Los Angeles; University of California, Riverside; Art Center College of Design; Claremont Graduate University; and has an ongoing relationship with Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Snowmass Village, Colorado. Miller is represented by Susan Inglett Gallery, New York, and has presented solo exhibitions at ACME, Los Angeles, as well as group exhibitions at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Orange County Museum of Art, Newport Beach, California; Las Vegas Museum of Art; Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles; and several others.
