Peter Miller, Artist

Influences have been many and varied, but the Dutch Vanitas painters of 16th/17th C. have been the biggest influence, due to their use of strong symbolism to reference human mortality. Also, the philosophy or theory of the metaphysical and surrealist artists of early 20th C. has been of interest. And continually my work is influenced by my thoughts, and my interest in and reading of philosophy and religio., and most of all by my continuing awareness of my own mortality.
