‘Wiedergeburt’ translates as ‘Rebirth’. It’s a triptych and hence consists of 3 parts: Growth, Death, Rebirth.
1st painting: We see a tree with roots made out of copper.
For ‘Wiedergeburt’ Miller used soil, varnish, plant remnants, fabric remnants and metallic pigments, as to illustrate the processes of growth, decay and re-emergence.
The tree is full of earthly, radiating energy, grown out of soil. The second painting portrays death in from of plant remnants on black matter. However there is still some life energy symbolized by the copper.
Anaisis: “Rebirth is a circular flow…”
