“Landscape Under Your Feet,” Linoleum Mosaics by Bill Miller

San Angel Folk Art

February 4, 2016 5:00 pm - February 4, 2016 7:00 pm

Discarded linoleum and vinyl flooring is reclaimed as a medium for the artwork of Bill Miller.

Creating an effect that lies somewhere between collage and stained glass, Miller’s interesting use of the linoleum’s pattern and color is his signature style.

Miller’s work has been recognized for rendering narrative moods and a sense of common memory. His unexpected use of patterns taps into the medium’s nostalgic familiarity striving to impart a sense of history and story within each piece.

Miller has exhibited his work in exhibitions across the United States over the past 15 years. Initially showing paintings in oil and acrylic, Miller began working with recycled materials as a founding member of Pittsburgh’s Industrial Arts Co-op, constructing large-scale sculptures made of scrap materials in abandoned industrial sites.
