ED MILIANO, The Nature of Time
Oliver Sears Gallery is pleased to announce the first solo exhibition of work by Ed Miliano.
The NATURE OF TIME features the extraordinary ‘Diary’ which was first shown in the RHA at the Future’s Show in 2012. ‘Diary’ is a study of the artist’s garden through his studio window every day for a whole year. So, comprising 366 individual works (it was a Leap Year), the viewer is confronted with an epic landscape that measures the shape of days, weeks, months in terms of mood, colour, tone and form. Standing in front of this monumental tableau the viewer can observe a single day and, simultaneously, look at the past and see into the future. ‘Diary’ not only documents the passage of time but also comments on the very nature of time.
The exhibition will show recent work including landscape images constructed in composites and newly cast bronzes. As with ‘Diary’ these works tap the artist’s interest in bringing the ‘outside’ indoors and making the connection between man and the natural world through the conduit of the garden.
Ed Miliano was born in New York in 1954. He received a BFA in 1976 from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Before becoming a full-time artist, Ed worked for over twenty-five years as a designer and illustrator in the USA and Ireland.
The exhibition will run until 27th March 2014.
