John Miller, Dominik Sittig at Nagel Draxler


The PR would have one believe its difficult apprehending a similarity to these two artists who really both seem to be keepers of the sewer. Miller's are the populist abject to Sittig's paint bile blowouts. Miller's mines the cultural detritus of things we would have sooner forgotten, how awfully the spectacle of game shows has spoiled and molded, Sittig draws out the sewage from the drain of abstraction, and expression gone wrong, both standing in the darkening mire of ugly culture, both about learning to love disgust.
