Dave Miko’s paintings like to hide: sometimes camouflaged as furniture, or obfuscated by repetition. Some paintings are forced to take centre-stage with clear messages spelt out in words or phrases but the letters try to slink back into the painting’s ground. Those that ‘fail’ are re-used as functional objects, setting up the question of whether function is a punishment for failure to perform, or a more worthy pursuit entirely. It is this ambivalence: challenging his doubts, or re-affirming his faith in his own output whatever the end usage, that sets Miko apart from fellow painters.
