March 4 – April 22, 2016
Opening Reception March 4th 6-8pm and Artists Talk April 1st 7pm
A landmark can be a place, an event marking an important stage or a turning point. The exhibition Decade, a Boston debut for interdisciplinary artist Nathan Miner, is all three. In 2006 the artist successfully built a working prototype of a spherical camera he had conceived of ten years earlier. Now, ten years later, he is exhibiting the camera, the resulting spherical photograph and his most recent painting Jewel, 2015, a large 32-sided geodesic form based on the photograph’s imagery. These three works frame a decade of invention and experimentation for the artist that has spawned a sophisticated, interdisciplinary marriage of photography, printmaking and painting in mural-scale installations. Altogether Decade features seven large works by Miner and a selection of smaller works on paper, which provide insight into his creative process and inventive methods. Abstracting forms and concepts from the real world, the artist stimulates viewers’ processes of pattern recognition but denies them resolution, opting instead to leave them in a liminal state. Following developments in the fields of psychology, philosophy and physics, Miner weaves ideas into the objects and environments he creates, evoking cascading associations that blend the cosmic and the mundane.
