Bill Miller


American artist, Bill Miller, who works with vintage linoleum to create iconic scenes from history including the assassination of President Kennedy.

Bill Miller is a collage artist who has worked primarily with vintage, discarded linoleum and reclaimed vinyl flooring for almost 20 years. Miller began working with recycled materials as a founding member of Pittsburgh’s Industrial arts Co-op constructing large-scale sculptures made of scrap materials in abandoned industrial sites.

Linoleum was the ultimate interior medium, present in all aspects of 20th century life from Grandma’s kitchen to the neighbourhood school. Miller’s images range from bucolic landscapes to surrealistic, fiercely political pieces and iconic scenes from history. His unexpected use of familiar patterns taps into the medium's nostalgic qualities, imparting a sense of personal history and rediscovery within each piece.
