Max Miller


Painting and Printmaking

Artist Statement

With awards and exhibition lists as long as an arm and a CV that reads like a who’s who of Australian Art, Max Miller has etched his way into the folklore of Australian art. He describes himself as a painter and etcher, and paints with watercolour on handmade paper and oil on linen. He paints landscapes and botanics in an evolutionary way and attributes the influence of China, India and Japan to his contemplative abstract works. Max Miller is an Australian artist who has studied extensively both in Australia and internationally including the Julian Ashton School, the East Sydney Technical College, the American School of Arizona in Florence, the Hammersmith College of Art in London as well as completing a graduate diploma at St Martins College of Art, London. In 1978 he received the Victorian Arts Board grant to study at printmaking and papermaking workshops in Europe and Japan. Miller has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions in Australia and overseas. He has won numerous prizes including Art Gallery of N.S.W. Wynne Trustees Watercolour Prize twice with the latest one in 2015 and he was a finalist in the Wynne Prize at Art Gallery of NSW in 2015 & 2016 .  His work is in the collection of various public institutions including National Gallery of Australia, Australian National University, High Court and Parliament House, Canberra, New England Regional Art Museum and Artbank. Miller has produced print editions for other artists including Lloyd Rees, John Olsen, Arthur Boyd and Frank Hodgkinson.
