Harland Miller

British satirical writer and painter

Harland Miller is a writer and painter most known for his reproductions of Penguin book jackets and his sly, frequently sinister sense of humor. Miller's works frequently contain undercurrents of sarcasm and self-deprecation, and examine the connection between word and picture in order to comment on the common discrepancy between representation and reality.

Rags To Polyester

White Frame Included

From Rags To Polyester belongs to one of Harland Miller’s most recognised series of works inspired by the Penguin book covers. From Rags To Polyester plays upon the well-known phrase ‘from rags to riches’, which suggests a commentary infused with underlying notions of class and modernity. One interpretation could be that it reminds a viewer of classic 20th century English comedians like Albert Modley and Frank Randle, in true Northern spirit. Drawing upon his Northern roots and steeped in British heritage, Miller’s work celebrates a treasured part of his country’s national aesthetic identity, whilst at the same time forging a fresh interpretation of that aesthetic that catapults it straight into contemporary culture, reimagined in a new, artistic context alongside bold text. The text takes precedent and combined with the dripping colour and painterly brushstrokes the effect of these works is one of an ageing paperback infused with artistic vigour.
