In his generation, Gerold Miller is one of the most internationally recognized artists, working on the limits between Minimal and Concept Art. Since his beginnings, the artist devotes himself to the question of pictorial quality in the border areas of sculpture, three-dimensional objects, limited wall areas and sculpturally and pictorially defined space. His works derive from a radically reduced use of form and color. They do not allude to anything, nor do they trigger associations. And yet they explicitly address questions of pictorial quality and space. They meet these criteria in a conceptual sense that sees the idea as the work.
Gerold Miller will present a group of new wall related objects especially ideated for the exhibition, and a group of sculptures in mirror polished steel placed on a platform on the floor. Both series are emblematic for the artist's unique and distinctive investigations into questions of pictoriality and space. The physical opening of the wall related objects into three-dimensionality, which is characteristic of this series, is real in some, only simulated in others. Despite the radical restriction to few means, the objects create a confusing multilayered impression of space. The illusionistic effect is accentuated by the use of extreme contrasts like black and neon pink or matt and glossy lacquers, both characteristical for Gerold Miller's artistic work of the last years. Operating at the margins of picture plane and sculptural space, they occupy the artificial and the real space at the same time.
