Jeff McMillan Biography

American artist Jeff McMillan (born 1968) studied fine arts at universities in Texas and Alabama before moving to London in 1998. His work approaches painting through materiality and process, often in dialogue with the found object. His series 'Biblio', for example, are works on paper made using books the artist shipped from America to the UK in the late 1990s—largely monographs of influential 20th-century painters. Each carefully selected book was wrapped in paper before McMillan dipped it in ink or oil paint to create a new work.

As a curator McMillan created and ran the project space PEARL from 2001–2004 and has since organised a number of exhibitions including the abstract drawing show Tell it Slant at Frith Street Gallery, London (2016) and I AR YOU: Portraits by Self-Taught American Artists at Large Glass, London (2013). Next to that, he was co-curator of British Folk Art at Tate Britain in 2014.
