220811: Galerie Ruzicska Gerold Miller - A Retrospective

Galerie Ruzicska Gerold Miller - A Retrospective 23.07.11 - 30.08.11 Concrete objects Large format works of polymorph mural objects oscillating between sculpture and painting created by the 50 year-old sculptor Gerold Miller are presented on the ground floor. Predominantly they are square aluminum box frames with slanted edges and smooth color surfaces. An opening in the centre of the works uncovers the empty wall. Around this opening, which in turn can form a square, colors are grouped with hard edges – Hard:edged also being the title of this series. There is no trickling or merging of color. Miller is much more interested in the collision of color planes, their effect on the observer and on the inner empty space, on which a shadow can suddenly appear. In his most recent works the opening is smaller and the picture as such prevails. While strolling through the gallery it seems that one is primarily faced with objects - objects dealing with questions about painting. Associations to Minimal Art evolve, the amplification of the banal, as presented by Donald Judd with his Boxes, is also found here. But it is not succinct art that is shown, rather art that boldly presents its statement: its about finding out which form one can still use today to seriously bring up color. This is done in large formats, partly reminding of Kenneth Noland’s or Ellsworth Kelly’s work, but also in smaller formats exhibited on the upper floor of the gallery. Smaller objects allow one to discover Miller’s experimentation with diverse formats and colors. There are tones of orange, shiny roughened surfaces and cast shadows whose effects are usually integrated into larger works. All in all a successful and ambitious exhibition by Nikolaus Ruzicska, which the audience and the critics will appreciate during Festival time.
