Dan Mills abstractly visualizes data about historic and contemporary events that impact our time. Using the conceptual space of maps and a painter’s vocabulary, he explores different ways of understanding the complex and information these events hold. Mills combines painting, collage, drawing, and printmaking to make works that vary in size from the diminutive dimensions of a child’s atlas page to paintings over twelve feet wide. In his work, he transforms the analytical language of cartography and data visualization into charged representations, invoking a more visceral and palpable response while furthering our understanding history and contemporary events.
