'Deep Time' is a solo exhibition of new work by Garry Fabian Miller in which he contemplates our existence with the unknown and our ability to take chances and evolve as a species. 

During the first lockdown in spring 2020 Fabian Miller spent time deeply immersed in the landscape of his native Dartmoor.  With life on hold he reflected on his relationship with photography, the end of cibachrome and his beloved darkroom and considered his direction going forward as an artist and how to navigate changing times. 

Citing Charles Darwin as 'the colussus in my life' and talking about photography as an evolutionary medium, he set out to glory in the demise of the darkeroom whilst embracing the opportunity for change and adaptation that it brings. 

"To be alive is to evolve and fulful your potential as a species.  those that survive will be those most open and responsive to change and willing to make themselves vulnerable and take chances". 

 

Artist ( Description ): 

Garry Fabian Miller was born in 1958 and is best know for his saturated coloured abstract work made in the darkroom without a camera.   His practice is characterised by long exposures between one and twenty-four hours, a distinct contrast to the photographic norm of the split-second shutter release.  Channelling light through coloured glass and liquid using cut paper forms, Fabian Miller creates luminous alternative realities that flow between pure abstraction and imageined landscape.  Light, time and colour become both medium and subject in his work and are themes deeply rooted in Fabian Miller's sense of place as a rural artist and connection to nature. 

“I am seeking a state of mind which lifts the spirit, gives strength and a moment of clarity.”
