In his X-Ray Fashion series, Steve Miller considers high fashion from a different perspective: using an X-ray machine, playfully examining the insides of luxury accessories. The Louis Vuitton prints display a transparent, half-opened suitcase revealing nothing but an array of roses, whose stems cross each other in a delicate pattern. His Roger Vivier shoe prints examine an expensive pair of heels, revealing the nails and pins that hold them together. And finally, inside the famed Chanel bags revealing only a comb and a single key—considering the world of high fashion from a different perspective. I love these colorful prints, selling on ArtSpace for $1500 each.

Steve Miller is best known for his paintings, which combine aspects of art, science, and technology. From realist painter to installation artist, to “genetic portraitist,” to abstract painter, Miller’s impulse has been the same: to wrestle with the fundamentals of life through visual media. He says of his own work: “When art and science intersect, it changes the context, beefs up the scale, and alters responses to imagery in unexpected ways. Images of the smallest of things become images you can get lost in. Scientists may not need or necessarily want that kind of scale or distraction. They’re making science; they’re looking for specific solutions. I’m making art and trying to communicate with a different audience, and scale is just one of the ways I try to do that.”
