Crossing the Line: Paintings by Steve Miller

For the past decade, Steve Miller has made provocative artworks based on his collaboration with Rod MacKinnon, a Nobel Prize winner for his breakthrough work on the movement of ions across cell membranes. In paintings that juxtapose photographic, drawn, and silk-screened images with excerpts from MacKinnon’s notebooks, Miller’s work dissolves conventional distinctions between text and image to explore what distinguishes art from science.
