'High on Hope’ (2019) is part of Harland Miller's ongoing series of paintings and prints based on the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text. The ensuing images are humorous, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of the Penguin classics themselves. Miller continues to create work in this vein, expanding the book covers to include his own phrases, some hilarious and absurd, others with a lush melancholy.

Together with Sir Nicholas Serota and Tracey Emin we invited 10 international artists to make a print which reflected broadly on the theme of childhood. As always, it’s a fascinating and exciting process developing a series of prints and seeing how different artists respond to the brief.
There has also been the added pleasure of producing the majority of the prints in our new print studio in Margate which has allowed us to give extra time and attention to creating them. The outcome of this is that we have been able to produce a truly exceptional portfolio of work.
We are proud to be involved with Save the Children. We will be donating 1/3 of the profits from sale of the prints to the charity which provide vital support for the incredibly important work that they carry our with vulnerable children around the world.
