“Reflective Accumulations,” an exhibit of paintings by Kansas City-based artist Grant Miller, will be on display in the Bonsack Gallery at John Burroughs School from Friday, April 7, through Wednesday, May 17. All are invited to an opening reception from 5:30 to 7:30 pm on April 7.
Miller begins his paintings with an architectural grid and then builds on that initial structure through a chain reaction of controlled, determined layers. Once the angles and lines come together, the forms that exist within the gaps come forth creating a striking dichotomy. These fluid forms begin to take center stage in Miller’s work, while the initial structure that brought the effects together slowly recedes. Some of his works have between eight and 18 layers.
