April 28 – June 14
(Santa Barbara) – Cabana Home announces a solo exhibition by contemporary artist and sculptor Brad Miller featuring a new selection of polished clay vessels and photographic prints. With each body of work, Miller offers the viewer the opportunity to linger on fleeting forms, holding captive isolated moments in the life of a bubble or the structure of a cell.
Miller’s vessels are thrown, bisqued, glazed, fired, and polished, often repeatedly, to create delicate patterned surfaces. Radiating spirals and asymmetrical interlocking circles reference organic forms; as though one is looking at a plant through a microscope.
The organic, fractal-esque imagery is repeated in Miller’s Wave Shadows and Bubble Shadows prints. Created by exposing film under several inches of water or a layer of bubbles, miller captures the ephemeral beauty of moving water and air.
Brad Miller has exhibited nationally, and his work is in numerous public and private collections, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Denver Art Museum, and the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian. Brad Miller pursued his graduate studies at the University of Oregon. Miller was the executive director of Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Aspen, CO from 1984 to 1992. He currently maintains
a studio in Venice Beach, CA.
