By utilizing animals as her main characters, Miller is able to transform narrative scenes from sensible to comically absurd. These animals – squirrels, frogs, monkeys – are thrown out of their natural elements and humanized within domestic scenarios. What was once commonplace and respectable becomes charmingly ludicrous.
Her most notable character – the cat – lends itself to a particular absurdity and relatability. Miscreants in their own right, their stubborn autonomy and disregard for consequence resonate with her human audience; by using cats to explore the humor and accidental charm in everyday moments, Miller convincingly proposes to us all that mistakes are just a part of life.
The exhibition will be on view until September 28th, 2019.
