Sections of England: The Sea Horizon, No 7, 1976-77

31 x 31 cm

Garry Fabian Miller became known in the 1970s for his landscape photography. Fascinated by the drama of changing light on a water surface, he created his first group of works in 1976/77, "Selections of England: The Sea Horizon". Each photograph was taken from the roof of his house, from the same angle and under the same technical conditions. The line of the horizon that divides each image into an upper and lower part is also constant. At times it is clear and sharp, at times it dissolves into the blue of sky and water, oscillating between the representational and the non-figurative, which led Miller to espouse abstract art in the 1980s.

Since 1985, Miller has created photographs in the darkroom without a camera. These are abstract compositions, free of individual gesture, which focus entirely on the strength of colour and form.
