Established in 1992, the Walter Wickiser Gallery aims to create a visual dialogue between art and artists of different cultures, and to remind audiences of art’s ability to transcend cultural boundaries. The Walter Wickiser Gallery has received numerous reviews in ARTnews, Art In America, and many other internationally recognized publications. Artist will be in attendance at the opening reception. Exhibition will be on view through June 23, 2015.
Creating images, which extend into the space around them and meet us in our realm of the three-dimensional, JD Miller uses a sculptor’s application of oil paint to challenge the conventional strategies of his chosen medium. Miller’s paintings engage the viewer with dynamic contours, light play, and visibility, and reveal at every viewing angle a different insight into their conglomerate layers of positive energy.
“I call myself a Reflectionist artist because I believe that the universe mirrors each of us in a unique way. My goal as an artist is to interpret that phenomenon, and my art is a multidimensional reflection of life and the way I perceive the world.” – JD Miller
Breaking the Color Barrier features JD Miller’s visually arresting abstract paintings, which combine his three-dimensional oil painting techniques with a precise and delightful command of color. With images that extend off the canvas and into the viewer’s space, and colors that have been personally mixed by Miller to capture light and appeal to our visual senses, his paintings undoubtedly demand attention. 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.
Throughout the creation process, JD Miller utilizes a multifaceted artistic language, which brings together the influences of music, sculpture, and chromatic expression to communicate and connect with the viewer. A traveler at heart, Miller draws constantly on scenic impressions and the influence of discovery. He is represented in numerous galleries and museums throughout the United States and involves himself with educational and charitable organizations. Just as venturing into Abstraction marked a remarkably successful new trajectory in Miller’s career, Breaking the Color Barrier represents an upward career projection for the already well-established artist into an entirely new art market. This is the first time that JD Miller will be represented in the heart of New York City – in the cultural mecca that is the world-renowned art scene of the Chelsea neighborhood. Breaking the Color Barrier is set to thrill Miller’s audience with new material and give viewers a glimpse into his ever-changing creative vision.
