LOS ANGELES — Southern California-based sculptor and ceramic artist Brad Miller’s latest exhibition Brad Miller: Stones & Object Relations Theory at Edward Cella gallery (July 22 – August 19, 2017) aligns with his keenness and curiosity for organic forms and our psychoanalytic relationships to them featuring lichen-like texture and hand-made stones.
“Think about all of the things in the city, or at the beach, here in Los Angeles, all the things, the rocks and cracks in the sidewalk, the natural things trying [to] reclaim the city and world that is theirs and we layer over it, over and over.”
“I want to put more natural things back into the world, so I make these rocks and paintings the same way the earth does, with clay, and pigments and dirt and energy.”
“When systems move between order and disorder, in the dynamic middle ground of changing pattern, I find my muses.”
