Harland Miller’s Demons Are Forever featured prominently in Miller’s 2022 exhibition Imminent End, Rescheduled Eternally at White Cube Bermondsey, London.

Miller says “The starting point for the painting was a detail taken from a painting by one of my favourite artists – Danish Situationist Asger Jorn’s. I think instead of worrying about his ongoing influence on my work, I decided to bring it forward in the form of this very small detail that I’ve blown up and reworked on a large scale – repeating back to front and then upside down – reducing in size each time to create or suggest a kind of eternal spiral. Combined with this colour palette – so associated with depictions of demons over time, it echoes the idea of forever in the title and also combines this idea of high and low culture, which is also a forever kind of theme in my work.”

Miller’s Demons Are Forever edition has been painstakingly handmade through multiple layers of etching and relief printing, with extensive hand-finishing by the print studio. Published by Manifold Editions & White Cube, 2024.

The Artist

Harland Miller

Harland Miller is a British writer and artist working both in Europe and America since the 1980s. In 2001 Harland Miller produced a series of paintings based of the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text. The ensuing images are humorous, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of the Penguin classics themselves.
