Samuel Lynne Galleries will present JD Miller’s exhibition Luminous Levitation. Creating images, which extend into the space around them and meet us in our realm of the three-dimensional, Miller uses a sculptor’s application of oil paint to challenge the conventional strategies of his chosen medium. Miller’s paintings perpetuate the Reflectionist philosophy, engaging the viewer with dynamic contours, light play, and visibility, and revealing at every viewing angle different insight into the conglomerate layers of positive energy.
In Luminous Levitation, Miller’s paintings take on new proportions, as he showcases some of his largest creations yet, in addition to oeuvres in completely new media. Miller’s massive, nine-feet-tall oil paintings combine his three-dimensional oil painting techniques with a precise and delightful command of color. In addition, he will debut his new sculptures created with 3-D acrylic applied to thick sheets of plexiglass, which are illuminated from within. The result is startling–– floating, fully holographic images whose pedestals grant them a 360-degree visibility, to be seen from every angle. Miller’s creations continue to be unique, tactile worlds of color and shape that allow the viewer to penetrate into the depth of the universe through their artistic representations.
Miller will be in attendance at the opening reception. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on hand through January 17.
