Plan For An Undoing New Drawings by Douglas Miller
I am interested in indeterminacy. My drawings inhabit spaces that are movable, where digressions in narratives and often-abandoned subjects avoid conclusions. I work in the same way that an author revises text, continually constructing and deconstructing the story through the process of editing and correcting. Seemingly, this idea of continuous refinement relies on the pursuit for a perfected finished product. However, I rely on the provisional and the possibilities of change more than on completed resolutions. Through this process, I explore images from the natural world; specifically, our own relationship to the animal kingdom. My drawings exemplify the process of refinement and change just as the natural world is endlessly being altered, rearranged, destroyed, and rebuilt. - DM
