Bubble Up - Greg Miller Exhibition at Gilman Contemporary @ Gilman Contemporary | Sun Valley | Idaho | United States
12:00 am
Growing up in California during the 50’s and 60’s Greg Miller was steeped in the pop culture of mid-century Americana. Miller draws from a time when advertising and text became encrypted into our experience of everyday life, when life as “advertised” and life as “lived” became intertwined for rural and urban dwellers alike. His images are saturated with hidden messages inviting the viewer to delver deep into his pieces, and into their own perceptions and nostalgia of the era.

For more than a century, dams have shaped Idaho’s landscapes, ecosystems and economies. At this historic moment, the project considers the history of damming in the Pacific Northwest, the effects of dams on the region, and a reimagined future for rivers and the life dependent on them in the American West.

The novel follows two smart, strong women caught in mid-life tragedies who manage to laugh through the tears and heartache of the modern world they are navigating. Frank and Youmans share that, “For the two of us, the profound grief of all that we lost living through a pandemic needed a place to land.’” They married their feelings of isolation and sadness with a desperate need to laugh by writing a semi-autobiographical novel about a Jewish woman and a Black Baptist woman who are dealing with their own grief in their own ways but are forced together to process and support one another to move forward in life. In “Never Meant to Meet You, “Marjette Lewis, self-appointed fixer of other people’s woes, is uncharacteristically determined to keep to her side of the driveway when it comes to her flawless neighbor Noa Abrams.
