TRUCKSCAPES: paintings and drawings from a mobile studio

Paintings and drawings made Since 1997 working from a Truck converted for use as a mobile studio in Co Sligo, Ireland. The studio allowed Miller to engage directly with nature, but with protectection and scale afforded by the mobile studio. They were first shown in 2003 as part of "Figure to Ground" at the RHA, Dublin, and later in Various TRUCSCAPE manifestations at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris; Limerick City Gallery and the New York Studio School. Since 2013, the truck is no longer mobile, it sits outside Miller's current studio in North Sligo, facing the iconic mountain of Ben Bulben.
