Garry Fabian Miller – ADORE
Garry Fabian Miller, one of the most inventive and original photographers of his time, makes a very welcome return to Arnolfini, and his home city of Bristol, to present ADORE, a major exhibition celebrating a lifetime of his work.
ADORE invites you to explore Fabian Miller’s ‘camera-less’ practice that experiments with darkness and light, and weaves in work by the artists, writers and thinkers that have inspired him over the years. Arranged around different elements, ADORE reveals an artist of incredible patience – returning to capture the same grove of hawthorn trees throughout the seasons, year after year – and for whom the slowing of time has taken on a deep-rooted importance.
Beginning with images from Sections of England: The Sea Horizon (1976 to 1977) – originally shown at Arnolfini in 1979 in Fabian Miller’s first ever solo exhibition when he was just 19 years old – the artist’s deep affinity with nature is established. Followed by early examples of his pre-abstract practice, ADORE introduces audiences to just some of the recurring characters, such as the hawthorn tree and the plants and flowers that adorn his garden and stretch out into the surrounding hedgerows.
Metro Imaging has been collaborating with Garry for many decades producing large format Ctype Prints for exhibitions; museums and collections. Head to our website or follow the links to find out more about our Ctype printing services.
