Bonsack Gallery: Friday, 7 April 2017
Untitled (79), acrylic and mixed media on aluminum panels, 77”x96”, diptych
“Reflective Accumulations,” an exhibit of paintings by Grant Miller, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery from Friday, April 7, through Wednesday, May 17. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on April 7.
Miller begins his paintings with an architectural grid and then builds on that initial structure through a chain reaction of controlled, determined layers. Once the angles and lines come together, the forms that exist within the gaps come forth creating a striking dichotomy. These fluid forms begin to take center stage in Miller’s work, while the initial structure that brought the effects together slowly recedes. Some of his works have between eight and 18 layers.
Miller explains that he records a set of experiences. Inherent in the process is the loss of peripheral information. Similar to reporting an event such as Hurricane Sandy or the presidential election, details are lost, and in that sense, Miller’s work mimics the bombardment of information in a digital age.
Regular gallery hours are 8 am to 5 pm, weekdays.
