Michelle A.M. Miller's “Terratopias for a Fantastic Future II,” a solo exhibition of sculptural paintings and collages within an immersive site-specific installation; reimagines Florida’s wild and designed green spaces as fantastical, fluorescent topographies through color, material and process. Oscillating between two- and three-dimensions, Miller’s sculptural paintings feature lavish quantities of acrylic paint alloyed with industrial by-products and recycled waste such as coal slag and shredded tire rubber. The artist translates even the traditionally flat process of collage into shadow-casting constructions. Her techniques of abundance include painterly brushstrokes layered with dense material clots, inky bleeds and multi-hued paint extrusion
