TRANSFER is pleased to present a solo exhibition from

"Gridworks" | April 13th through May 4th 2013

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

We exist within a built environment that is constantly mediated by the grid. Grids organize space through coordinate mapping and patterns of development. Grids compress, redisplay, and reorder information. Grids are an enforcement system imposed upon both nature and culture.

Grids can also be populated with marks that are fundamentally human — the characters of our shared alphabets. These marks — once scratched by hand, now recorded by a keypress — are not simply carriers of meaning but iconic forms in their own right. The codes of information interchange can potentially become an artist’s palette, a medium for drawing. The coldness and rationality of the grid confronts the warmth and playfulness of the human touch.

A. BILL MILLER is Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Penn State Altoona. He earned his MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His nationally and internationally exhibited works include his acclaimed Gridworks Project, which comprises abstract ASCII drawings, ink drawings, animated GIFs, and video elements.
