Sam Orlando Miller





The resulting series crystallizes ideas and forms that Miller has been playing with for years — namely the faceting, coloration, and patination of mirrored surfaces that fragment the reflection and in doing so, augment the objectness of each piece. “A lot of the mirrors I was doing at the beginning actually were old, things I’d found in dumps,” Miller says. “When I ran out of that stuff, I had to start doing the patina myself. The reason for the patination is more to do with when you’re looking in the mirror, if there is no patination, you’re looking at yourself. If there is patination, your eye jumps to the surface of the object. The complexity makes the pieces a bit more interesting.”
