R. A. “Reuben Aaron” Miller (1912-2006) Works on Wood.
All works acquired 1990 to 1996 directly from the Artist in Rabbittown, Georgia, Old Cornelia Highway, near Gainesville”. Some works were signed in black marker and others were signed with gold metallic marker (that I brought along each time I visited —my “trademark” style of customization).
Many have the typical RA signature motto: “Lord Love You”.
Most of these works on wood were done by RA himself at night sitting and watching his beloved Atlanta Braves on TV during their 1990's championship years.
R. A. Miller’s (1912–2006) work have been exhibited in numerous institutions and are in the permanent collection of prestigious museums: The Georgia Museum of Art, Athens – “Lord Love You: Works by R.A. Miller from the Mullis Collection” (2009); Brenau University's Simmons Visual Arts Center – “R.A. Miller: A Tribute” (2006); The High Museum of Art, Atlanta; and the alfresco Folk Art Park at the corner of Ralph McGill Blvd N.E. and Courtland Street N.E., downtown Atlanta, established during the 1996 Summer Olympic Games (Games of the XXVI Olympiad).
All of R. A. Miller's works on wood may have rough edges and sides, holes, and unsquare corners as they were procured from salvaged materials. It is typical for them to have nail holes because he tacked them to the side of his house when presented for sale.
