Gerold Miller 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. Working within the border of sculpture, painting, and installation, Miller tests the limits of conceivable space and representation. His notorious vision, set, 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, "Verstärkeror" “amplifier”, his first series of free standing sculpture, also draws from the premise of an open structure concept. Made of three projecting beams, the "Verstärker" 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. Oscillating between abstraction and figuration, content and non-content, image and object, Miller’s oeuvre exploits the innumerable possibilities of interpreting and visualizing our physical present. Although repetition and seriality are an essential theme of his research, each work is distinct from one another. The artist successfully creates an image exempt of preexisting references and introduces a space to be discovered and defined by its viewer.
