Los Angeles-based artist Rodney McMillian makes conceptually informed paintings, sculptures, and videos that have been described as combinations of Abstract Expressionism, Old Master painting, and Duchampian ready-mades. Thematically, his works address absence and enigma, though, as critic James Scarborough has written, “His take on absence is more sensuous than cerebral.” McMillian has made numerous works from scavenged mattresses, battered stuffed furniture, and stained, drearily colored carpet—materials that are often quite literally haunted with the residue of human experience. McMillian has been featured in major group exhibitions including Frequency at Studio Museum in Harlem; Uncertain States of America at Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, Oslo; Thing: New Sculpture from Los Angeles at the UCLA Hammer Museum; and Painting in Tongues at MOCA, Los Angeles.
