There’s a memory of something like a tongue or a candy wrapper and I chased it. I thought I’d see things if I looked but I couldn’t. I thought I’d see through things if I looked harder but I still couldn’t. I got jammed up on some duffer and dope and for some reason I’m lying face down on a beach with both hands in my left pocket. The waves are crashing near me, only I don’t know where they are. I’m too weak and unconcerned to look up. I wonder if I open my eyes now I’ll see the center of the Earth but I don’t dare. That kind of knowledge would be a dream and I have stopped having dreams.

SEASON is proud to present DARK ALL OVER EUROPE featuring new oil paintings by Philip Miner.
Corday rolls over in her grave. There is nothing new, or at least there is nothing new to try. The coffin walls shrink in a bit, expand in a wrong direction, only to shrink again. Confinement, then release–the act of painting, the tiny death of showing. Above her, the world continues, caring less and less about this wretched fate. With each attempt towards memory, another failure, another beheading.
There’s nothing specific, but the paintings will be a bit reflective of the endgame of painting that was reached by some in the minimalist project. One question that comes up is how is it possible to make anything new, especially in abstraction? Who cares? A beheading in abstraction should be welcomed. These artifacts are missing a few parts or perhaps they hold the memory of a form. Again, who cares?
Philip Miner lives in Seattle, Washington. He received his MFA in 2006 from the Milton Avery Gradate School of the Arts at Bard College, and has exhibited at numerous venues in the Northwest.
