I was recently introduced to the work of Nick Miller and had to take a quick minute to share it here.  One of the best bodies of work I have seen in a long time.  British born and Ireland based, Miller has many paintings on his website to take in.  They are felt and the color is gut wrenching, its so good.

The work has a nice raw and surreal feeling to it. Love the first one the most. Very absurd and horrifying. Awesome choice of an artist.

Thanks Shelley. I'm glad you agree and thanks for reading. I like what you say -- raw and surreal -- it is true and done so simply by looking for these occurences in real life. He is so good.
