Gerold Miller DE, b. 1961
Gerold Miller was born in 1961 in Altshausen, Germany and is currently based between Berlin, Germany and Pistoia, Italy. He completed his studies in sculpture at State Academy of Art and Design in Stutgart, in 1989, under professor Jürgen Brodwolf. He received scholarships for studies in Chicago, New York, Paris and Sydney.
Miller creates minimal, abstract visual experiences that investigate the fundamental elements of painting and sculpture. His signature sculptural paintings consist of aluminium base, coated with brightly colored industrial lacquer, which gives the artworks a high-gloss finish.
The reflective experience, as well as the scale of the works transform the space and create a continuous tension between the objects and the surrounding space. Miller works repetitively with sequences of similar geometrical forms and therefore his practice can be seen as a collective vision that always has a contemporary reference.
Miller's work has been exhibited and collected by museums and private collections worldwide, among them: Nationalgalerie, Berlin; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; Kunsthalle Weishaupt, Ulm; NOMA New Orleans Museum of Art; Kunstmuseum Stutgart; Neues Museum, Staatliches Museum für Kunst und Design Nürnberg; Kunstsammlung des Deutschen Bundestages, Berlin; Museum für Konkrete Kunst, Ingolstadt; Tel-Aviv Museum of Art; Museo de Arte La^noamericano, Buenos Aires; Museum Moderner Kunst, Wien; Museum Ostwall im Dortmunder U; Kunsthalle Winterthur; Takasaki Museum of Art; Fondation Cartier pour l'Art Contemporain, Paris; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt a.
