Lot description
Titled “Sahara” after the Sahara Hotel built in 1952, this acrylic and collage painting by Greg Miller portrays one of Las Vegas’ famous landmarks. Known for hosting a range of performers from Judy Garland and Jack Benny, to George Carlin and Don Rickles, the Sahara Hotel was also the film location for the classic 1960 version of Ocean’s 11. Miller immortalizes the iconic landmark (which boosts Elvis as an upcoming performer), through his own style of using Americana imagery with collaged elements and a vivid palette.

Known for his dynamically executed paintings which combine abstraction with figurative elements, the work of artist Greg Miller (b. 1951) explore relationships between urban environments and personal experiences. Drawing inspiration from history and American culture, Miller investigates themes of ambiguity, impermanence, nostalgia, and contradiction with his visually engrossing compositions, often executed through collage, paint, and constructions of natural materials. Miller attended San Francisco Art Institute, UCLA Graduate School, and received his MFA from San Jose State University. The artist has exhibited at numerous venues including Caldwell Snyder Gallery (San Francisco, CA), Campton Gallery (New York, NY), Kidder-Smith Gallery (Boston, MA), Scream Gallery (London, UK), among others.
