INTERVIEW: Delving into the Mind of Paton Miller: Artist, Curator, and Southampton Local

Published

Sitting in Paton Miller’s home studio, a large warehouse-like building on the outskirts of his Tuckahoe Lane property, Paton led me through the adventures that allowed him to arrive right where he is today. Having grown up in this studio myself, from taking drawing classes as a child with Paton and running around their once-swimming-pool-now-turned-koi-pond with his youngest son Christian, it’s shocking to me that I never knew the tale that is Paton’s life story. So, let’s start from the beginning together.

On June 22nd, 1953, in Seattle, Washington, Paton Miller was born to Robert Miller, a pilot, and Barbara Miller, a chemist. With his older brother Chris, they resided in the Pacific Northwest until Paton was an early teen and then moved to Hawaii as a family in the late 60s. Paton recalled to me his constant desire to leave the damp climate of the Pacific Northwest with a line that stuck with me through our interview, “I wanted to get out of there, but it hasn’t gotten out of me.” While saying that, he gestured to a large standing canvas on my left where a singular evergreen tree can be found in the shadows of the painting- stark, for its presence is unexpected in an otherwise treeless narrative. You can find remnants of the Pacific Northwest as tiny but significant characters in many of his pieces.
