That deserves to change and hopefully will as a small selection of large paintings go on show at the Art Space Gallery in Islington. Miller is a considerable painter, a realist in the manner of Freud or Beckmann, but with a touch that is unmistakably his own. I've known his work for a few years and have long admired the intensity and integrity with which he goes about his task, but these recent paintings reveal a new and utterly convincing confidence. The subject is a small one - mostly views of the studio with an occasional visit from his wife Noreen or a reflected self- portrait - but the scope of the pictures is huge. He's an ambitious painter and he pulls it off.
