A Fool's Paradise: The Art of Tom Miller

ByNicholas West

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A full color catalogue with essays by exhibition curator Nicholas West, Tom Miller and Thomas Hall documents the Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery exhibition, “A Fool’s Paradise: The Art of Tom Miller.” In the exhibition, Miller, working in the realm of magical realism, reproduces his physical and psychological experiences in the small Mexican village of La Antigua, a place where the forces of ancient magic and modernity collide and where the present inhabitants live side by side with the specters of the past in the sweltering heat of the jungle. The coalescence of Miller’s personal symbolic world combined with ancient cultural and historical references weaves a tale of a profound and fantastical journey upriver through history, mythology and contemporary culture. Through drawings, painting, collages and mixed media objects, Miller brings his audience along for the experience of a place where myth and reality are constantly shifting.
