A.B. Miner's intimately scaled oil paintings, often self portraits, are radical for their obsessively painted surfaces and raw emotional content. Also via works on paper (and occasionally film) the artist's practice documents the permeability of flesh, questions science's and society's understanding of gender, depicts a struggle for control over one's body, and challenges the limits of emotional resilience. Many works reveal what the artist and scientific communities hide from the outside world such as inner turmoil and bodily diversity.
