“I am interested in what is suggested by an image, especially when that image is juxtaposed to other images of contrasting meanings. My work is a dialogue between visual symbols and the implied meanings of those images. I hope to evoke connections to different contexts, ideas, thoughts, concepts, emotions and even fantasies through this type of symbolic abstraction.” – Jonathan Millet
