TRANSFER IS PLEASED TO PRESENT ‘GRIDWORKS’ a solo exhibition from A. Bill Miller. We exist within a built environment that is constantly mediated by the grid. Grids organize space through coordinate mapping and patterns of development. Grids compress, redisplay, and reorder information. Grids are an enforcement system imposed upon both nature and culture.

Grids can also be populated with marks that are fundamentally human — the characters of our shared alphabets. These marks — once scratched by hand, now recorded by a keypress — are not simply carriers of meaning but iconic forms in their own right. The codes of information interchange can potentially become an artist’s palette, a medium for drawing. The coldness and rationality of the grid confronts the warmth and playfulness of the human touch.


A. BILL MILLER is an Assistant Professor of Visual Arts at Penn State Altoona. He earned his MFA at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. His nationally and internationally exhibited works include his acclaimed Gridworks Project, which comprises abstract ASCII drawings, ink drawings, animated GIFs, and video elements.

TRANSFER is pleased to present a unique series of work from our flat files produced by A. Bill Miller. Available in limited edition, this series supports the installation of Gridworks and the exposure of Miller’s work to a wider collecting public.

This archival-quality poster depicts Sol LeWitt’s Sentences On Conceptual Art in Miller’s own gridfont7, a custom True Type font generated using simple instructions. The font is available for free download. The digital edition of this work is part of the Rhizome Artbase archive.

Limited to an edition of 5.

These editioned inkjet prints from Miller’s ongoing Gridworks series reward the viewer with an exuberance that belies their systematic foundation. Each work is printed on archival 11″ × 17″ paper, and comes signed and numbered by the artist.
