Gerold Miller (b. 1961, Altshausen, Germany), is an established contemporary minimalist and abstract artist presently based in Berlin. He studied sculpture at the State Academy of Art and Design in Stuttgart.

 

Venturing within the intersection of sculpture, painting, and installation, Miller tests the limits of conceivable space and representation. His notorious visionset, and section series derive from a minimalist principle of a precise and radically reduced composition of superimposed color surfaces. To produce a contrasting effect, the artist combines finely shaded gradients, matte and glossy lacquer, as well as varying monochromatic tones. The viewer and his immediate surroundings are momentarily reflected on the lacquered stainless steel, becoming an integral element of the composition itself and defying preconceived notions of artwork as an inanimate object.

 

Miller pushes his minimalist ideas to an even further extent. In his Monoform series, two equally proportioned aluminum angles are hung horizontally, one above the other. Similarly, Verstärker or “amplifier”, his first series of free standing sculpture, also draws from the premise of an open structure concept. Made of three projecting beams, it embodies the universal and basic notions of dimension: height length, and depth. As opposed to defined and enclosed geometrical forms, the Monoform and Verstärker series reject spatial boundaries and emphasize infiniteness.

 

The artist's oeuvre exploits the innumerable possibilities of interpreting and visualizing our physical present, while engaging with diverting themes such as abstractions and form, perception and reality, motion and structure. Although repetition and seriality are essential subjects of his research, each work is distinct from one another. Miller successfully creates an image exempt of preexisting references and introduces a space to be discovered and defined by its viewer.

 

Gerold Miller's work has exhibited internationally in various leading institutions including, Nationalgalerie, Berlin; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk; Kunsthalle Winterthur; Kunstmuseum Stuttgart; Kunsthalle Weishaupt, Ulm; Tel-Aviv Museum of Art; Museo de Arte Latinoamericano, Buenos Aires; Museum Moderner Kunst, Wien; Fondation Cartier, Paris; Berlinische Galerie; Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt a. M.; Opera City Gallery, Tokio; MASI Lugano, Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana; Musée d’Art Contemporain, Bordeaux; and ZKM, Karlsruhe.
