Love Saves the Day.
London: White Cube, 2014 - Excellent condition. 15 colour screenprint on 410gsm Somerset paper. Sheet size: 146 x 105 cm. Edition of 100. Signed in pencil lower right by Miller, numbered lower left. Harland Miller has reworked a rare design from the archive of Penguin Books; the Russian Review periodical, published in the 1940s in this print. Miller has created a fictional paperback cover using the same design but has changed the colour to a cerise pink. The direct and optimistic statement, 'Love - Saves The Day' is unusual for the artist who frequently employs a dark and satirical turn of phrase to create works that are as unsettling as they are humorous. This cover has been painted in a gestural style which references the colour field paintings of American Abstract Expressionism. Miller says, 'colour changes the way people read text – if you made the same work in green, people would read the text differently. The same text would have a very different meaning but you would never really know why.'
