Artwork description

Navot Miller is an Israeli artist whose work primarily explores intimate interactions and the queer aspects of ordinary encounters. Miller alleviates this ordinariness by cloaking it in the most vivid of colours and playing with multi-layered symmetry. The depth of the painting stems from the juxtaposition of coloured planes (table, walls, ground) and precise lines (ceiling, trees, poster). Moreover, the contrasting shapes and colours help to accentuate the figure leaning against a wall. Through this playful visual language, Miller can tackle more sensitive topics, such as religion and sexuality.

Navot Miller

Navot Miller (b.1991) focuses on intimate interactions and the queer aspects of banal, uneventful encounters. Throughout his life, Miller has been fascinated by visuals and sound as a way of expressing ideas and exploring topics such as sexuality, religion and desire.

Using the practice of opposite and contrasting colors as a form of painting and the aesthetic of collaging short videos, Miller creates montages of scenes into paper, canvas and videos while juxtaposing tragedy and positivity.

Primarily working with oil & water based paint, he engages with flatness as a way to create senses of still drama & voyeurism in his works.

He pays close attention to the figurative form of objects he considers as a muse and to the sense of space curated by multiple layers collaged together.
