It is a sublime, otherworldly silence, one that is evoked by Fabian Miller’s favoured circular shapes, such as an iris, as in Gaze (i) (2009–10), or a planetary body, as in The Night Cell (2009–10). These works offer a location that is both within the mind and an imagined place far beyond its bounds. Could Gaze be a knowing eye looking back at us? Or could both pieces be the genesis or dying remains of a distant planet? It is a territory caught between uncertainty and hope.
