In The Side Profile Series, Shantel Miller explores complexities within representations of blackness. With a suite of eight oil paintings, Miller portrays young, black men in side profile, as a method to re-contextualize and bring into focus the black body – revealing that each subject depicted is replete with individual characteristics, vulnerabilities and truths. This body of work crafts a space for exploring notions of the viewer, viewing and the viewed.
